§ Mr. MACLEAN
asked the Lord Advocate the number of cases of alleged reckless driving by omnibus drivers reported by the Glasgow police to the sheriff's fiscal during 1928 in which no proceedings were taken; the number of those cases where fatalities occurred and the number of fatalities; the number of those cases where non-fatal injuries occurred and the number of people injured; and the reasons why the fiscal took no proceedings?
The LORD ADVOCATE
The number of cases referred to in the first part of the hon. Member's question is 175; in 37 cases fatalities occurred, and the number of fatalities was 37; in 138 cases no fatal injuries occurred, and the number of people injured in these cases was 136. In each case the reason why no proceedings were taken was that in the view of Crown Counsel in cases submitted to them, and of the Procurator Fiscal in the other cases, the evidence did not justify proceedings.
