HC Deb 27 November 1950 vol 481 c105W
39. Sir W. Wakefield

asked the Minister of Transport what is the percentage of accidents basically attributed to road conditions; and what action is being taken to reduce this percentage at the earliest opportunity.

Mr. Barnes

A preliminary analysis of the reports of road accidents involving death or personal injury in 1949 shows that road conditions were the primary factor in less than 1 per cent. of the accidents. They no doubt contributed to many more and I will continue to do everything that is possible in present circumstances of financial stringency to improve road conditions where they are likely to cause danger.
