HC Deb 01 March 1920 vol 126 c13

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the City and South London Railway Company run trains during part of the day with the entry gates closed to some of their carriages which are run empty, and that this has recently caused an accident and a death; whether it is according to Regulations that such trains should be run; and, if so, if he will order the company to exhibit proper notices on the platforms stating which parts and carriages of such trains are open for the use of passengers?


I am in communication with the railway company in regard to the point raised by the hon. Gentleman. I gather that the unfortunate accident to which he refers was one in which a passenger attempted to enter a moving train.
