§ 27. Major OWEN
asked the Postmaster-General, whether his attention has been drawn to the fatal accident which occurred at Penyclip, Penmaenmawr, Carnarvonshire, on the 19th instant, due to the deceased striking a telegraph pole while travelling in a van; whether the remarks of the coroner regarding the accident have been brought to his notice; and whether, in view of the danger to human life arising from the presence of telegraph poles on the roadside, he will give instructions for the immediate removal of such poles from narrow roads such as the Bangor-Conway road?
§ The ASSISTANT POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Sir Ernest Bennett)
I am making inquiries, and will write to the hon. and gallant Member as soon as they are completed.
§ Major OWEN
Will the hon. Gentleman suggest to the right hon. Gentleman the Postmaster-General that it is time that he gave orders to his engineering department to make a general survey of these telegraph poles on the roads 1476 throughout the country; as they are a positive source of danger in view of the present traffic growth?
