§ 6. Mr. HAYES
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department on what agencies the police rely in dealing with road accidents in the Metropolitan Police area beyond the London County Council district and outside the area of the activities of the Red Cross ambulance services; and whether the police are experiencing any difficulty in the expeditious removal of injured persons to hospitals?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)
The police make use of the ambulances of over 60 different agencies, including the St.. John Ambulance Association, 42 urban district councils and 13 borough councils, and it is only in very rare cases that any difficulty occurs in arranging for the expeditious removal of injured persons to hospital.
