HC Deb 09 February 1960 vol 617 cc37-8W
Dr. Broughton

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that two of a pack of hounds in full cry after a fox were killed by a car on the motorway M.1; and what action he proposes to take to prevent a repetition of such occurrence, in view of the danger to motorists.

Mr. Marples

I have seen reports of this incident. The responsibility for preventing animals from getting on to the motorway rests primarily upon the persons in charge of them, although the fence provided by my Department is proof against ordinary livestock. I do not consider that any further action on my part is called for on the strength of this isolated occurrence.
