HC Deb 28 April 1914 vol 61 c1524

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the fact that Major Pringle has announced that the rest of the inquiry into the railway collision at Burntisland is to be held in private, on the ground that privacy is in the interest of the parties concerned; and if he will say whether it is in the interests of the railway servants or in that of the management of the railway company that the inquiry is to be held in private?


It was considered to be desirable in the interests of some of the railway men concerned in the accident that some of the evidence should be taken in private.
