HC Deb 26 February 1891 vol 350 cc1692-3

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether a small Committee of this House might be appointed to consider the Report of the Chief Commissioner of Police on Street Accidents when presented, and to consider what rules and regulations might be laid down for the safety of the lives and limbs of the inhabitants of the Metropolis?


As I have before stated, the Commissioner of Police, should he find on inquiry that his existing powers are insufficient, will shortly lay before me suggestions for securing more safety to the public. If legislation is found to be necessary the House will have an opportunity of discussing the matter fully in Committee of the whole House.
