HC Deb 24 July 1935 vol 304 c1828
36. Mr. GUY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can state the main causative factors which have resulted in a decrease in the total of fatalities from road accidents and an increase in the total of injuries during the first six months of this year compared with the same period last year?


The assumption of my hon. Friend's question is, I am happy to say, incorrect. There has been an appreciable decline both in the number of deaths and in the number of injuries on the roads this year as compared with last. The decrease is, of course, to be ascribed to the many measures taken to promote road safety and to the co-operation of the public.


While thanking my right hon. Friend for his reply and his correction, may I ask him whether he will pay more attention to street lighting, from the safety point of view?
