HC Deb 06 July 1926 vol 197 c1865

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been drawn to the death of a child, Thomas Shevlin, who was killed at Mount Vernon railway station on 28th May through the failure of the railway company to have the gate closed and no men on duty to keep children from getting into danger; and what steps is he taking in the matter?

Colonel ASHLEY

I have received reports of this accident both from the Procurator-Fiscal and from the railway company, but I do not think that on the facts disclosed there is any action that I could usefully take.
