HC Deb 14 November 1934 vol 293 c1979W

asked the Home Secretary whether the pedestrians knocked down by a motor car, one of whom died shortly afterwards, on the evening of 4th November at Kirk Sandall, near Doncaster, were walking on the road with their backs to the oncoming traffic; and whether a footpath is provided for pedestrians at that particular point?


I am informed by the Chief Constable of the West Riding of Yorkshire that notice of intended prosecution has been served upon the driver of the car and, in the circumstances, it would not be proper for me to make any statement on a matter which may be the subject of evidence before the court.
