The estimates for the number of fatalities and casualties in accidents involving illegal alcohol levels between 2000 and 2004 are published in table 2a in the Drinking and Driving article in Road Casualties Great Britain—Annual Report". The report for 2004 was published on 29 September 2005 and a copy placed in the House of Commons Library.

The Department does not collect information on the number of casualties attributed to drivers under the influence of drugs, but I refer to the hon. Member to my answer of 23 January 2006, Hansard, columns 1726–77W.
