§ Mr. FOREMAN
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the insecurity of railway travelling, as shown by the murder of a lady on the Bexhill express; whether he has considered the possibility of improving com- 534W munication between the different compartments so as to avoid occurrences of this nature; and whether he will make a report on the precautions taken on this matter in foreign countries?
§ Mr. NEAL
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given on this subject on Thursday last to the hon. and learned Member for the Chertsey Division of Surrey, of which I am sending him a copy. The practice of reserving compartments for the use of ladies only is largely adopted abroad as well as in this country.
