asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the fact that safety glass will be compulsory on lower front windows of new vehicles after 1st January next, whether, as a result of the serious accident which occurred to a London General Omnibus Company omnibus at Bishopsgate, on 18th November last, he will include side and upper windows in the new Regulations?
§ Mr. PYBUS
I assume that my hon. Friend refers to the collision which occurred at Bishopsgate on 18th November between a crane jib carried by a lorry and the upper deck of a motor omnibus, as a result of which certain of the passengers were injured. While regretting the occurrence of this accident, I do not think, in view of its unusual nature, that I should be justified in making Regulations on the lines suggested.
