HC Deb 20 May 2004 vol 421 c1132W
Vera Baird

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drivers of diesel vehicles have been prosecuted for overfilling fuel tanks not fitted with non-spill fuel caps, which then caused dangerous diesel spillages, in each of the past three years. [168626]

Caroline Flint

Available information held centrally on prosecutions does not include the circumstances of the offence so that offences involving fuel spillages cannot be distinguished from other offences within the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 group of offences.
