HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 c56W
Mr. Adley

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement about the crash on the M4 near Reading on 15 January, involving a double-decker bus.

Mr. David Mitchell

Officers of my Department have already examined the vehicles involved in the accident and are continuing to help the police with their inquiries. The coach was fitted with a speed limiter device and a tachograph, and the latter may assist further in determining the circumstances of the crash. Eleven of the 43 passengers on the coach received injuries sufficient to require hospital treatment.
