Wednesday, 18 May 1966
Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. L'Estrange: asked the Minister for Local Government the number of people killed on the roads in Ireland (a) to date in 1966 and (b) in 1965; and when he intends to introduce the proposed legislation to deal with death on the roads.
Mr. Blaney: Provisional figures for the period ending 30th April, 1966, which is the latest date for which returns are available, show that 110 people were killed in road accidents. In the calendar year 1965, 356 people were killed.
Mr. L'Estrange: Surely we have been told that on a number of occasions? We have not been told that the Road Traffic Bill will be introduced in this session. Surely it is time to do something about the deaths on the roads of Ireland?
