The available information relates to local authority areas. In the Tameside local authority area (which includes the Stalybridge and Hyde constituency) there were four fatal casualties in 1997 and four fatal casualties in 2002. The numbers of people seriously injured in road accidents reduced from 117 in 1997 to 85 in 2002, a fall of 27 per cent. Estimates on the basis of parliamentary constituencies will become available in the summer and I shall write to my hon. Friend with figures for Stalybridge and Hyde and place a copy of my letter in the Libraries of the House.
