§ John Barrett
To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many motor vehicles were registered to people living in the(a) Edinburgh, west, (b) Edinburgh, central, (c) Edinburgh, east and Musselburgh, (d) Edinburgh, Pentlands, (e) Edinburgh, north and Leith and (f) Edinburgh, south parliamentary constituencies or for the most appropriate geographical areas for which figures are available at the latest date for which figures are available. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
I have been asked to reply.
The number of currently licensed motor vehicles registered to keepers with addresses in the Edinburgh constituencies is shown in the table. The totals include vehicles registered to companies and other entities as well as to individuals. The table shows the figures for each ward, as some wards (marked 1) straddle two constituencies. The volume data is for December 2000, but the analysis to wards was available only by the pre-1996 definition of wards in Edinburgh. No split of volumes is available for the straddling wards and the total for the ward has been included in the constituency in which the greater part of the ward falls.
