HC Deb 20 March 1929 vol 226 cc1724-5

Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that a few days ago a young woman was thrown over and killed on the Embankment, entirely owing to the rapid speed at which certain vehicles were passing? Surely something can be done to prevent that sort of thing. As a matter of fact, people are skipping across that road day after day.

Colonel ASHLEY

I am sorry to hear of the unfortunate accident, but the way to avoid that sort of thing is to go by the subway.


Has the attention of my right hon. and gallant Friend been called to the speed of motor cars passing down in front of the House of Commons, between the house and St. Margaret's Church, and cannot he do something to have a "Slow Down" notice posted, so that the lives of Members crossing there may be protected?

Colonel ASHLEY

That question does not arise out of the question on the Paper.

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

Do you skip?
