§ MR. J. D. WHITE (Dumbartonshire)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the character of a level crossing on the North British Railway at Dalmuir, Dumbartonshire, where an express train recently killed a child and a young man who was making a gallant attempt to rescue the child; and whether he proposes to take any steps to secure the erection of a bridge there, so as to avert further accidents.
§ MR. LLOYD-GEORGE
The level crossing in question is not one at which the Board of Trade can require the erection of a bridge. I am, however, in communication with the company as to any precautions that can be taken to guard against accidents in the future.
