Dangerous Driving: Reoffenders

Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN 33459, tabled on 23 March 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what was the highest number of previous dangerous driving offences held by a person who was not given a sentence of immediate custody upon a further dangerous driving offence in (a) England and Wales and (b) West Yorkshire in each of the last five years; and what was the sentence for the most recent conviction for that offence in each case.

Obtaining the necessary information to answer these questions involves accessing the secure Police National Computer (PNC) system, which my relevant officials are unable to do at this time in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. I will write to the Hon Member in due course with the information requested, once my officials are able to safely access the PNC system, and will place a copy of my letter in the Library of the House.
