HC Deb 06 September 1887 vol 320 c1340
MR. WOOTTON ISAACSON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)

asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade, Whether he is aware that two more fatal accidents have occurred in the last fortnight at the Bromley Level Crossing on the London, Chatham, and Dover Railway, making three within a month; and, whether the Government have any power to compel the London, Chatham, and Dover Railway to construct a foot bridge, without delay, at this most dangerous level crossing?

THE SECRETARY (Baron HENRY DE WORMS) (Liverpool, East Toxteth)

Yes, Sir; the Board of Trade have been informed of the accidents referred to by the hon. Member. An inquiry into the circumstances attending them has been made by one of the Inspecting Officers of the Board of Trade; and when his Report has been received I shall be in a position to state what steps will be taken to prevent the recurrence of similar accidents.
