asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the number of fatal accidents which have occurred on Brabyns Brow, Marple, Cheshire, including one during the past week; and will he cause an inquiry to be undertaken with the local authorities concerned, together with the Derbyshire and Cheshire County Councils, to see by what means this state of affairs can be remedied?
If my hon. Friend will send me further details as to the nature of these accidents I will inquire into the matter and see whether any action can usefully be taken by my Department.
I shall be very glad to give the right hon. and gallant Gentleman particulars. Is he aware that the whole trouble in this matter arises from the dual control of the two county councils?
If the hon. Member will bring the facts to my notice, and if I can do anything useful by bringing the two county councils together, I shall be glad to do so.
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that a proof of the dangerous condition of this hill is the fact that a notice board has been put up inscribed with the words "Deathtrap"?
