§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Short)
I beg to move,That an humble Address be presented for a Return showing the number of accidents resulting in death or personal injury known by the police to have been caused by vehicles and horses in streets, roads, or public places, and the number of persons killed or injured by such accidents in Great Britain during the year ended the 31st day of December, 1929 (in continuation of Parliamentary Paper, No. 83, of Session 1929).
§ Lieut.-Colonel Sir A. LAMBERT WARD
Should I be in order in asking the hon. Gentleman whether in this Return he could differentiate rather 929 more closely between the vehicles that caused these various accidents and whether it would be possible to indicate the percentage of accidents caused by each type of vehicle to which licences have been issued. By these means I think we shall be able to get a better idea of the comparative danger and the comparative number of accidents caused by these various vehicles in respect to their various numbers.
§ Question put, and agreed to.
