This data is not held in this Department.  The Road Safety Authority may have some relevant information on the matter.  However, I am not aware that such information is routinely recorded in respect of either deaths or serious injuries and may be problematic in terms of consistent and robust definition.  

I have referred the question to the Authority for direct reply.  I would ask the Deputy to contact my office if a response is not received within 10 days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A
