HC Deb 28 February 1945 vol 408 cc1404-5W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether investigation has been made into the fatal accident that occurred on 21st December in Old Broad Street; and whether he can state the precise cause of the accident.

Mr. Noel-Baker

The fatal accident at Old Broad Street on 21st December was due to the skidding of an omnibus. I am informed that the road was wet and greasy when the accident occurred; in order to avoid a pedestrian the driver was obliged suddenly to apply his brakes, and his vehicle got out of control. I understand that the driver was exonerated from blame.
