HC Deb 01 June 1905 vol 147 c437

I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether he can state the total number of motor-car accidents that have been reported this year; and how many have been fatal accidents.


I am not able to state the number of motor-car accidents reported this year, but I am informed that the number reported during the last twelve months outside the Metropolitan Police District, but including the City of London, was 1,346. My information does not show how many of these cases were fatal. As regards the Metropolitan Police District I may refer the hon. Member to the table of particulars given by my right hon. friend the Home Secretary in answer to a Question, by the hon. Member for the New Forest Division on April 19th † last.
