To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to the answer of 19 November 2007, Official Report, column 461W, on motor vehicles: licensing, how many registered vehicle owners who failed to comply with a statutory off-road declaration and who failed to comply with subsequent enforcement action were consequently summonsed to appear in court.

Since the inception of Continuous Registration enforcement in March 2004 cases have no longer been settled via a magistrates court summons but via a county court claim. The volumes for both are:

Magistrates court cases County court claims
2003-04 1,660
2004-05 111 107,100
2005-06 133,254
2006-07 107,550

Prosecution procedures for statutory off-road notifications changed in 2004 from a criminal to a civil process.
