Sandra Gidley: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many people resident in (a) Southampton, (b) Test Valley borough and (c) the ceremonial county of Hampshire were (i) arrested under suspicion and (ii) convicted of driving when drunk in (A) each of the last five years and (B) each month since October 2007. 
The arrests collection held by the Home Office covers persons arrested for recorded crime (notifiable offences), by main offence group (e.g. violence against the person, sexual offences, robbery, burglary, theft and handling stolen goods, etc.) and police force area within England and Wales. Information on summary motoring offences including those of driving etc. after consuming alcohol or taking drugs are non-notifiable and as a result are not covered by the collection.
Available information held on convictions at all courts for offences of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs for the years 2002 to 2006 (latest available) is provided in the following table. Data for 2007 will be available on 27 November 2008. The data provided cover both drink and drugs offences combined, as volumes of prosecutions and convictions for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs cannot be accurately established separately.

1. It is known that for some police force areas, the reporting of court proceedings in particular those relating to summary motoring offences, may be less than complete.
2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
