HC Deb 19 November 1954 vol 533 c708

Lords Amendment: In page 29, line 34, leave out "due to" and insert: likely to cause bodily injury to persons, being accidents caused by.

Mr. Joynson-Hicks

I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."

This Amendment introduces a small new point, and is in response to discussions which we have had before. The effect provides that devices such as runaway switches which may cause accidents in the sense of damage to vehicles may nevertheless be permitted, provided that they are not calculated to cause injury to people.

Question put, and agreed to.

Subsequent Lords Amendments, to the Amendment in page 36, line 15, agreed to.
