HC Deb 11 February 1959 vol 599 c212W
117. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation whether he will analyse last year's road accidents according to the horse power and/or make of each motor car involved.

Mr. Nugent

I am not satisfied that an analysis of the kind suggested by the hon. Member would afford useful results, because, among other reasons, it could not be related to the mileages travelled by the various types of car involved. The Road Research Laboratory does, however, make extensive use of all available information in the course of its long-term investigations into the factors contributing to road accidents.
