HC Deb 01 June 1960 vol 624 c127W
5. Rev. LI. Williams

asked the Minister of Transport, when he expects to complete his investigations into the effects of alcoholic liquors on road accidents; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

I shall not be in a position to make a further statement on this matter until the report of the official team which is to visit Scandinavia in mid-June had been received and considered.

16. Mr. F. Noel-Baker

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give the figures for all road accidents, including fatal ones, in which heavy commercial vehicles were involved, for the 12 months to the nearest convenient date.

Mr. Hay

The information asked for is not available for 1959. From January to March, 1960, goods vehicles of over 3 tons unladen weight were involved in 3,087 accidents. Of these 201 were fatal.
