§ 86. Sir B. Janner
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that his proposed special inquiry into road deaths at Christmas cannot be comprehensive in view of the fact that no arrangements exist at the present time for the provision of full reports about the cause of all road accidents; and whether he will arrange that for the next few months a sample of all road accidents be submitted to examination as to cause and the results then submitted to analysis by the Road Research Laboratory.
§ Mr. Marples
The object of the special inquiry is to establish, as far as possible, the facts about the fatal road accidents at Christmas, not at other times of the year. The Laboratory will have access to, or will itself obtain, detailed information about the circumstances of the fatal Christmas accidents, including much that is not available in the normal statistical returns.
