HC Deb 13 February 1941 vol 368 cc1541-2W
Mr. Denville

asked the Attorney-General, whether his attention has been called to cases in the High Court in which large awards of damages have been made to witnesses of motor accidents because of the shock they suffered; and whether he will consider the possibilities inherent in such awards with a view to legislation?

The Attorney-General

I think that the matters to which the hon. Member refers are best left to the common law and to the discretion of Judges and juries, and it is not proposed to introduce legislation on the matter.
