HC Deb 13 February 1871 vol 204 c161

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether it is the intention of Her Majesty's Government to introduce a Bill during this Session to carry into effect the recommendations of the Select Committee of last Session on the subject of Compensation for Railway Accidents?


, in reply, said, he was not prepared to introduce any measure such as that indicated; but he was considering the subject of inquiries into railway accidents, both official and judicial. He, however, should wish to see the Bill of which the hon. Member for West Essex (Sir Henry Selwin-Ibbetson) had given Notice before he came to a final conclusion what course he should pursue in respect to the subject.
