HC Deb 09 July 1923 vol 166 c952W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport the causes which led to the serious collision at Diggle, on the London, Midland, and Scottish Railway; and what steps he is taking in the matter?

Colonel ASHLEY

In accordance with the usual practice of the Department, an inquiry will be held, and Colonel Pringle, the Chief Inspecting Officer of Railways, has been appointed. The inquiry has opened this morning, and I am unable to make any statement as to the causes of the collision until I have received Colonel Pringle's Report.
