HC Deb 19 February 1931 vol 248 c1470W
Lieut.-Colonel MOORE

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether his attention has been drawn to the number of accidents to school children crossing or playing in the roads in Kilwinning; and what steps he proposes to take to secure their safety?


My attention had not been drawn to this matter but, on inquiry, I am informed that, of 14 children injured in street accidents in Kilwinning in 1930, seven were children of school age. The police are actively engaged in efforts to reduce the number of accidents, and the education committee have recently given directions for the regular instruction of school children in the principles of safety in traffic.
