asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of motor accidents involving death or injury which have occurred during the last four months; and in how many cases motor coaches or char-a-bancs were involved and in how many cases motor cycles, with or without sidecars, were involved?
As the hon. Member will be aware, an annual return is published on the basis of figures furnished by Chief Officers of Police throughout the country. To give the figures asked for my right hon. Friend would have to obtain special returns from all Chief Officers of Police and in view of the existence of the published annual returns he does not think he would be justified in asking chief officers to furnish these additional figures. I am sending to the hon. Member a copy of the return for 1928.
