HL Deb 07 March 1879 vol 244 c367

VISCOUNT TEMPLETOWN moved— That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty for a Tabular statement by months of the accidents which have occurred in the streets of the Metropolis and its suburbs referable to the passage of vehicles, bicycles, or horsemen from 1st January 1878 to 31st January 1879, showing the circumstances under which each accident has occurred, its issues, and results.


said, no one would question the importance of doing all that was possible for the preservation of life in the streets of the Metropolis; but most of the information which was asked for by the noble Viscount was already contained substantially in the Reports of the Commissioners of Police. The Report for the year ending December 31 had not yet been presented. He had no objection that the Report should show month by month the accidents that had occurred. He was afraid it was impossible to give more information about the issue and results of accidents than was already contained in the Reports.

Motion agreed to.
