§ 22. Mr. Wakefield
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that an omnibus belonging to the Bristol Tramways and Carriage Company, in February of this year, damaged the home of two old people, Mr. and Mrs. J. Tuckwell, at 40, Oxford Road, Swindon, and that the company refuse to pay for the damage done; and whether he will see that the damage these old people have suffered through no fault of their own is made good by the company?
§ The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport (Colonel Llewellin)
We have no power to require compensation to be paid for damage in a case of this sort, if indeed damages are payable. I will, however, make inquiries and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
