HC Deb 30 March 1926 vol 193 c1833
39. Mr. VIANT

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger to passengers at Lime Street Station, Liverpool, caused by the practice of wheeling on the platform trucks with iron projections in front; and whether, in view of the accidents which have already happened, he will make representations to the railway company with a view to minimising the risk either by the removal of these iron projections or by prohibiting the wheeling of these trucks on the platforms?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am aware that a passenger has complained that he sustained injury in October last through coming into contact with a barrow in the charge of a postman at Lime Street Station, and that he has alleged that the truck was being negligently used. The barrow in question was, I understand, of the ordinary station type. I do not propose to take any action.
