57. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will give figures showing the percentage of each type of motor vehicle involved in road accidents during the past twelve months; and if he will, in future, break down the particulars as he has done in respect of road accidents to show the percentage of private cars, lorries, horses, mail vans, newspaper vans, cyclists and motor cycles involved.

The percentages of types of motor vehicle involved in road accidents resulting in personal injury in 1958 were: mopeds, 1; motor cycles, 21; cars and taxis, 39; buses and coaches, 6; light goods vehicles, 14; heavy goods vehicles, 3. In future, there will be information in greater detail about types of vehicle, but none about particular types of van nor about horses.
