HC Deb 26 April 1926 vol 194 c1660
64. Mr. J. H. THOMAS

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware that in police districts, other than London, the return showing the number of accidents resulting in death or personal injury known by the police to have been caused by vehicles in streets, roads, or public places is compiled on the. basis that each accident causing death or personal injury is counted as one accident only, irrespective of the number of persons killed or injured thereby; and whether he will take steps to secure that future returns are more accurate by being compiled, as in the case of the Metropolitan police district, on the basis of the number of persons killed or injured?


Yes, Sir. Arrangements have already been made for the number of persons killed and injured as well as the number of accidents to be shown for all police districts in the returns for the current and future years.
