HC Deb 14 March 1956 vol 550 cc375-6
63. Dame Irene Ward

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what proportion of accidents on roads in built-up areas are attributable to inferior street lighting; and what representations he has received from insurance companies on this matter.

Mr. Watkinson

The road accident statistics do not provide this information. I am not aware of any representations from insurance companies on this matter.

Dame Irene Ward

In view of all the discussions now taking place on road accidents, and the fact that insurance companies have a great deal of information upon them, is it not "crackers" that my right hon. Friend has not made inquiries from the insurance companies, who, I am sure, have views on inferior street lighting?

Mr. Watkinson

I am sorry, but owing to the "crackers" in my hon. Friend's voice, I could not hear her supplementary question.
