HC Deb 25 June 1951 vol 489 cc100-1W
70. Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Minister of Transport what evidence is given by statistics as to the proportion of road accidents which occur when men are driving and when women are driving, respectively.

Mr. Barnes

Of the number of drivers of motor vehicles, including motor cycles, involved in road accidents during the month of April (the latest period for which figures are available), 95.2 per cent. were men and 4.8 per cent. women. These figures afford of course no indication as to the relative safety of men and women drivers.
