HC Deb 05 November 1991 vol 198 c21W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what representations he has had over the Health and Safety Executive decision to take away barrow crossings at stations.

Mr. Freeman

The Health and Safety Executive's railway inspectorate supports British Rail's decision to remove barrow crossings from locations where they are no longer needed because of the risk of unauthorised use which presents a safety hazard, particularly at unmanned stations and at those where there is third rail electrification. A few letters have been received from people who formerly used them.
