§ MR. S. COLLINS (Lambeth, Kennington)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware 1276 that four persons were killed in the Walworth Road and many others injured by motor 'buses in the week ending May 12th; and will he consider the devising of some measure whereby this new mode of traffic may be so controlled as to avoid danger to the public.
§ MR. KEARLEY
The Hon. Member appears to have been misinformed, for I understand that there was no fatal accident in the Walworth Road in the week ending May 12th, and only one case of slight personal injury caused by motor omnibuses, came to the knowledge of the Police during that or the preceding week. In the week ending the 5th instant, there were two fatal accidents caused by motor omnibuses in the Walworth Road.
