§ 68. Mr. Hunter
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation, in view of the road casualty figures issued for 1957, of 5,550 killed, 63,706 seriously injured, 204,602 slightly injured making a total number of road casualties of 273,858, an increase of 2¼per cent. compared with the road casualty figures for 1956, if he will ask the local road safety committees to organise special road safety campaigns during the year.
§ Mr. Nugent
Local authorities are asked each year to co-operate in quarterly road safety campaigns organised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. For 1958 they have already been asked to co-operate in a special national road safety 49W campaign from 16th June to 30th September; in addition there will be the normal quarterly campaigns during the rest of the year and special holiday campaigns at Easter, Whitsun, August Bank Holiday and Christmas.
