§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has received from individuals and organisations regarding the use of non skirted level crossing barriers by British Rail.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I have received a small number of representations, from individuals and organisations, since 1981 when a revision of the Department's Requirements permitted the railways to install full-width barriers40W without skirts, or to remove the skirts from some existing barriers. Each representation has been considered on its merits.
