HC Deb 08 February 2001 vol 362 c640W
Mr. Ennis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions how many owners of vehicles found in(a) Barnsley and (b) Doncaster were prosecuted by the DVLA for (i) not registering their vehicle and (ii) not taxing their vehicle in 2000. [148618]

Mr. Hill

Vehicle excise duty and vehicle registration offences detected in the Barnsley and Doncaster areas are all prosecuted by the DVLA local office in Sheffield. It is not possible to split the number of cases into specific areas but during the period January to December 2000, 519 people were prosecuted by the Sheffield office for not registering their vehicle and 4,680 people were prosecuted for not taxing their vehicle. In addition, 492 people settled out of court for failing to register a vehicle and 10,452 for failing to relicense or make a statutory off-road notification.
