§ Mr. Temple-Morris
asked the Secreary of State for the Home Department how many people were convicted of having motor vehicles without a properly paid up excise licence during the years 1975, 1976 and 1977 or in the three latest available years.
§ Mr. John
The number of persons convicted of non-payment of revenue relating to a motor vehicle licence, when that was their principal offence, is shown in the annual publication "Criminal Statistics". The total number of findings of guilt for these offences, including cases where this was not the principal offence, is shown in the annual publication "Offences relating to motor vehicles". The editions of these publications giving figures for 1977 are not yet available.
