Illegal Motor Fuel

Mr. Peter Robinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many roadside tests were carried out on motor vehicles to test for illegal petrol and diesel in Northern Ireland in each of the last five years in (a) urban and (b) rural regions. [19458]

John Healey: I have been asked to reply.

The total number of roadside challenges of motor vehicles by HM Revenue and Customs for tests on the fuel being used is just one element of an integrated antifraud strategy on oils. The figures requested are contained in the table.

These figures only relate to challenges made by H.M. Revenue and Customs (ex HM Customs and Excise) and do not include any challenges made by other enforcement agencies, which may have included a sight test of the vehicles fuel as part of their checks.

It is not possible to split this into urban or rural regions, as these data were not recorded.
