HC Deb 16 December 1908 vol 198 cc1856-7
SIR JOHN BENN (Devonport)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that on the stud tramway system in the Mile End Road, E., certified by the Board in June last, animals and persons have been injured by live studs; whether he can state the number of live studs and accidents during the working of the system and the amount paid by the London County Council in claims for injured horses or persons; and whether the Board's certificate is still in force with regard to this stud system.


Accidents to two persons and five horses have been reported to the Board of Trade as occurring on the tramway in question through coming in contact with live studs. The tram service was withdrawn in July last and the period covered by the Board's certificate expires on the 23rd instant. I have no official information as to any amounts paid by the London County Council for injury either to persons or to horses.
