§ Mr. Jenkin
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions what was the accident rate on the Al2 Brentwood—Ipswich in the last 12 months; and what was the average accident rate on motorways carrying a similar volume of traffic in the same period. 
§ Mr. Hill
[holding answer 26 April 2001]: The table shows the number of injury accidents per month on the Al2 between its junctions with the M25 and the A14 in 1999, for the last 12 months for which national statistics are available. Monthly traffic flow data are not readily available for this stretch of road and therefore it is not possible to present accident rates for comparison with other roads.
Month Number January 20 February 8 March 22 April 15 May 21 June 17 July 12 August 19 September 22 October 20 November 22 December 28
