§ Miss McIntosh
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many convictions for(a) driving without due care and attention, (b) failing to have proper control of a vehicle, (c) careless and inconsiderate driving and (d) dangerous driving have been secured in connection with the use of (i) hand-held mobile phones and (ii) all types of mobile phone in each year since 1997. 
§ Paul Goggins
The statistics collected centrally do not enable the convictions for motoring offences in connection with mobile phones to be separately identified.
As from 1 December 2003, the specific offence of driving while using a hand-held mobile telephone will be introduced under a new regulation to be added to the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986.
