HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c33
MR. RANDELL (Glamorganshire, Gower)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the inspecting officer appointed to inquire into the causes of the accident whereby a portion of the Cockett Tunnel, on the Great Western Railway main line, fell through, has made his Report to the Board of Trade; and, if so, what is the result of such inquiry; and what steps are being taken for securing the safety of the travelling public and the railway servants before the tunnel will again be used for traffic.


I have not yet received the inspecting officer's report. The Board of Trade understand that the company are engaged on necessary works to secure the safety of the public, and that no passenger traffic is at present admitted through the tunnel.
