§ 6. Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of cases in which fines of 10 guineas or less have been imposed upon persons convicted of dangerous driving in Scotland during the past year and the number of cases in which the fine exceeded 10 guineas?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
During 1933 fines not exceeding 10 guineas were imposed in 206 cases, and fines exceeding 10 guineas were imposed in 38 cases, in respect of convictions in Sheriff Courts and the High Court of Justiciary on charges of contravention of Section 11 of the Road Traffic Act, 1930, or on common law charges of dangerous driving.
§ Mr. ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
May I take it from those figures that in the great majority of cases a man can drive to the danger of the public without being fined more than 10 guineas?
