HC Deb 12 May 1930 vol 238 c1471W

asked the Minister of Transport the number of accidents at level crossings during the last 12 months; and what steps have been taken to do away with such level crossings which have the worst record in respect of accidents?


The number of accidents involving personal injury at level crossings, including private and footpath crossings, during 1929, was 70. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave on 15th April to the hon. Member for Central Southwark (Mr. Day), in which I stated that I had received applications for grants towards schemes for the elimination of 55 level crossings.
