§ 28. Sir JOHN MARRIOTT
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the fatal accident which occurred at the south-west corner of Belgrave Square on Friday last; is he aware that the Home Office had been previously warned by the late Sir J. D. Rees, a former Member of this House, about the dangers arising from traffic at this particular place; and whether any and, if so, what precautions have since then been taken to minimise the danger?
The circumstances attending the fatality are well known, and as both drivers were at the time taken into custody and stand remanded on a charge of causing the death of the lady, no further comment is at this time desirable. The previous questions by the late Sir J. D. Rees have been borne in mind and instructions given to the police to be on the alert to prevent fast or inconsiderate driving. It is difficult to see what further steps can be taken, but the matter will be further carefully considered.
