HC Deb 23 February 1939 vol 344 c602W
Mr. Lyons

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will state the number of accidents on and at level crossings during the year 1938?

Mr. Burgin

Provisional figures for 1938 show that there were 166 accidents at public road level crossings in which trains were involved. In 140 of these accidents there were no casualties but there were casualties in 26, 17 persons being killed and 28 injured. I am unable to state the number of accidents at level crossings during 1938 involving road vehicles only.
