HC Deb 31 May 1945 vol 411 cc387-8W
Mr. R. Etherton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department in how many of the 625 traffic casualties resulting in death, and in how many of the 20,355 traffic casualties resulting in personal injury in 1944, in the Metropolitan police area, British Service vehicles were involved; and in how many United States Service and diplomatic vehicles.

Sir D. Somervell

I regret that the detailed information asked for by my hon. Friend could not be supplied without a considerable expenditure of time and labour. Certain of the information is, however, available for the last eight months of 1944. During that period out of a total of 414 persons killed on the road in the Metropolitan Police District, 58, three and 14 persons respectively were killed in accidents in which British, Dominion, and Allied Service vehicles were primarily involved.
