Question for Department for Transport

UIN HL1739, tabled on 9 October 2017

The Government are not yet in a position to publish any robust data in this area. Although preliminary work to develop suitable methodologies has taken place, it has not yet been possible to develop these into a data set that can be generated in a regular or systematic way. Both departments will continue to keep this area under close review going forwards.
