HC Deb 09 July 1934 vol 292 c21

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the proposed mulcting of a motorist of 12s. ed. for the fee of a doctor when his car has been in collision with anyone, he can state whether the doctor in each case will be summoned by the parties to the accident or by the police, or whether it is intended that any individual shall have the right to communicate with a medical man?

Captain AUSTIN HUDSON (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The circumstances of accidents vary greatly and a hard and fast rule as to who has the right to summon medical assistance would be likely to involve dangerous delays.
