HC Deb 18 January 1940 vol 356 cc270-1W
Sir I. Albery

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to recent accidents in which injured persons have been dragged long distances under motor omnibuses; and whether any further safety precautions are contemplated?

Captain Wallace

My attention has been drawn to the reports of these two most regrettable accidents. The problem of road accidents in the "black-out" is engaging the constant attention of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Home Security and myself, and steps have already been taken to deal with the special lighting needs of public service vehicles.
