HC Deb 22 March 1955 vol 538 c178W
Mr. Owen

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many road accidents have occurred at the junction of Avenues with Hawthorn Road in Ashington, Northumberland, since 1945; and what proportion this is of the total road accidents of the town since 1945.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Between 1st January, 1952, and 28th February, 1955, there were 10 accidents involving personal injury at junctions of Avenues with Hawthorn Road. This compares with a total of 176 personal injury road accidents in the townof Ashington during the same period. I am afraid that comparable figures for the years 1946 to 1951 are not available.
