HC Deb 24 January 2002 vol 378 c1101W
Ann Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers were successfully prosecuted in 2001 for a driving offence; and how many of these offences involved the use of a hand-held mobile phone. [28352]

Mr. Denham

Statistics on prosecutions for motoring offences in 2001 will be published in the autumn.

There is no separate offence of driving a vehicle using a hand-held mobile telephone, and any prosecution is likely to be for driving without due care and attention or for not being in proper control of a vehicle.
