§ 19. Mr. GROVES
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the courageous act of Snowie Thompson, an Australian cowboy, who, in Kensington High Road on 9th June, noticing a pair of horses attached to a van dashing dangerously out of hand and likely to injure people in the streets, brought the horses to a standstill, thus probably saving injury to many people; and whether, as Mr. Thompson sustained a broken collarbone and many bruises, necessitating his absence from duty, he will take appropriate steps to give recognition to such cases of bravery and pay compensation for injuries sustained?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I had not previously heard of this incident. I will make inquiry and communicate with the hon. Member.
