HC Deb 16 March 1938 vol 333 cc422-3W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Home Secretary whether he can state the number of cases in which pedestrians have been prosecuted by motorists for negligence during the last 12 months?

Mr. Lloyd

The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis informs me that during 1937 one pedestrian was prosecuted by the police for failing to cross the road on a pedestrian crossing with reasonable despatch, but he is not aware of any prosecutions of pedestrians by motorists. I regret that I have no information about the rest of the country.
