HC Deb 02 July 1930 vol 240 cc1981-2W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that on 25th June a motor car mounted the footway in Mount Street, London, crashed through the shop window and landed completely inside the shop; that the kerb was between two and three inches high above the roadway outside the premises; that the accident took place after the closing hour, which alone prevented probable loss of lives; and whether he will consider approving only those plans for new roads and alterations which show kerbs to be six inches high to prevent cars mounting footpaths under any circumstances?


I have no knowledge of the occurrence mentioned by my hon. Friend, but with respect to the height of kerbs I would refer him generally to the answer which I gave him on the 28th May last.
