Sir J. D. REES
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether he is aware that, on 5th December, 1918, Mr. J. H. Smith, of 47, Edwin Street, Nottingham, was run into by a lorry from Hucknall, D. 1028, driven by one Barraks, with the result that Mr. Smith's horse was killed arid he was put to the expense of £14; that he has had no compensation; and whether it is proposed to give him any, since he has witnesses to prove he was on the right side of the road?
§ Major TRYON
I have been asked to reply to this question, in view of the fact that the driver of the lorry was a member of the Royal Air Force. The case has already been considered in connection with the original claim preferred by Mr. Smith's solicitors, who were informed in February of last year that the claim was inadmissible, there being no evidence of negligence on the part of the Royal Air Force driver.
