HC Deb 05 May 1967 vol 746 c136W
Sir R. Russell

asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will state the number of occasions recently on which horses being ridden or led by officers or soldiers in London have been endangered or frightened by cars, lorries or other vehicles being driven too fast or too close to them in contravention of section 64 of the Highway Code; and if any riders or horses have been injured.

Mr. Boyden

There have been three incidents this year.

Two horses and one rider were injured. I much regret this but do not necessarily accept that the incidents arose from a contravention of the Highway Code.
