HC Deb 17 July 1933 vol 280 c1544W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the number of traffic accidents to children in Scotland under five years of age and between five and 14 years of age, respectively, for the year 1931–32 or for any subsequent period?


I regret that the statistics collected in connection with the annual Street Accidents Return do not classify accidents under age groups, and such statistics could not be obtained without the expenditure of much time and trouble. The annual report of the Registrar-General for Scotland for 1931 shows that in that year 235 children under 15 years of age were killed in Scotland as the result of traffic accidents, and of these 72 children were under five years of age.

Forward to
