HC Deb 09 March 1938 vol 332 cc1888-9
55. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that the railway company concerned agreed not to insist on their immunity from liability to the holders, or representatives of holders, of cheap tickets in the Castlecary disaster, and the desirability of having such immunity discontinued, he is now prepared to introduce legislation for this purpose?

Mr. Burgin

I am actively continuing my discussions with the railway companies on the question of the limitation of liability which they attach to cheap day, half day and evening tickets and workmen's tickets. I will let the hon. and learned Member know as soon as I am in a position to make a statement.

Mr. Mathers

Will the right hon. Gentleman make this information available to other hon. Members, perhaps by circulating it in the OFFICIAL REPORT?

Mr. Burgin

What I propose to do is to notify the hon. and learned Member of the occasion on which he can profitably put down another question.
