HC Deb 19 June 1930 vol 240 c589W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that an inquest, held on 17th June, showed that Joseph Barbour Boyes was killed at Eaton Square by a motor car mounting the pavement; and whether, as this shows the danger to pedestrians from low kerbs, he will in future approve only such plans of new roads and alterations as show the kerbs to pavements and footpaths six inches high above the roadway?


The inquest held on 17th June regarding the death of Joseph Barbour Boyes was attended by one of my technical officers, and I understand that the accident was directly attributable to a defect in the steering-gear.
