HC Deb 08 December 1927 vol 211 c1602W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that the London and North Eastern Railway Company have withdrawn the gatekeeper at the Stagebank level crossing right-of-way, in the Parish of Heriot, Midlothian, that the gates are now left unattended; that this is dangerous to people using this right-of-way and to all passenger traffic on the Edinburgh-Galashiels route; and what action does he propose to ensure the safety of foot and railway passengers?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am not aware of the circumstances referred to, but I will make inquiries and afterwards communicate with the hon. Member.
