HC Deb 20 February 1933 vol 274 c1448

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will state the number of accidents that have occurred during the past year to cyclists travelling by night without tail lights; and how many of these were fatal?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir John Gilmour)

Five cases of accidents to pedal cyclists who had neither rear light nor reflector were reported to the police in the Metropolitan Police District during the nine months, January to September, 1932. One of these accidents was fatal. I regret that I have no further information as to accidents of this particular kind.
