asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the railway accident which occurred at Rutherglen on 17th February, when 51 people were injured; if he has made any investigations into the cause of this accident; and what steps are being taken in order to avoid such disasters in the future?

An inquiry has already been ordered into the causes of this accident and I will give careful consideration to any recommendations which may be made as a result of that inquiry.
