§ Mr. DUCKWORTH
asked the Minister of Transport whether his Department keeps records of all serious motor accidents; and, if not, whether, in the public interest, arrangements can be made for such lists to be regularly compiled and kept up to date?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
A Return is compiled by the Home Office, and presented annually to Parliament, showing the number of accidents resulting in death or personal injury caused by vehicles of various classes in streets, roads or public places in Great Britain. In addition, the divi 2353W sional officers of my Department make inquiries into the more serious road accidents which come to their notice in their respective areas, and an analysis of the results of these inquiries is given in the Annual Report on the Administration of the Road Fund. As regards the London traffic area, reports on road accidents are received, as provided in Section 2 of the London Traffic Act, 1924, and a summary of the results of the investigation of these reports will he issued with the Annual Report of the London Traffic Advisory Committee.
