§ Lord Apsley
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will give the number of fatal motor accidents during the last ascertainable period of 12 months in the United Kingdom and in France and Germany, respectively?
§ Mr. Burgin
The following figures have been extracted from the latest published returns of persons killed in road accidents:6W
Year. No. Great Britain … 1936 5,188 France … 1935 4,415 Germany … 1936 8,381
The figures for Great Britain and France relate to accidents in which motor vehicles were involved. The German figures are understood to embrace all road accidents. The figures may, therefore, not be strictly comparable.
