HC Deb 17 February 1932 vol 261 cc1636-7

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that, from a recent inquiry by the Yorkshire Voluntary Hospitals Committee relative to the number of third-party motor accidents treated in 36 hospitals in Yorkshire during the first six months' working of the Road Traffic Act, 1930, it appears that the total cost incurred by the hospitals for treating these cases amounted to £4,500, of which sum only £123 was recovered from accident insurance companies; and whether he will amend the Road Traffic Act accordingly?


While I sympathise with the difficulties of the hospitals, I am afraid I cannot see my way to introduce further legislation.
