HC Deb 09 December 1912 vol 45 c68W

asked the Home Secretary how many persons were killed in the Metropolitan area, including the City, in each of the past seven years, and the first eleven months of this year by motor omnibuses, private motor cars, taxi-cabs, electric trams, all other kinds of motor vehicles, and horse drawn vehicles, respectively, and the number of each type of such vehicles licensed in each period?


As the Statistical Department at Scotland Yard is now fully engaged in preparing information for the Select Committee, I fear I cannot supply my hon. Friend with any further special figures; but he will find a comparative return of accidents caused during the last ten years in the Annual Report of the Commissioner of Police, which shows also the number of public carriages licensed by him.
