HC Deb 02 March 1938 vol 332 c1110
71. Mr. Cassells

asked the Minister of Transport whether the railway company involved in the Castlecary railway disaster, in which one person killed and 13 injured were holders of cheap-day tickets, have agreed to pay damages in respect of loss, injury, and damage suffered, consistent with common law liability?

Mr. Burgin

I am informed by the London and North Eastern Railway Company that it is not their intention to plead, as against the holders of the cheap-day tickets to which the hon. Member refers, any special contract limiting the company's liability in respect of the loss, injury and damage suffered by those holders in the Castlecary railway disaster.

Mr. R. Gibson

Does that undertaking extend to anything beyond the incidents arising out of this particular accident? Is it general?

Mr. Burgin

The question relates to this disaster, and so does the answer.
