Accident investigation under scrutiny

Date: 15 July 2009

Shadow transport minister Robert Goodwill has asked Labour's Louise Ellman, joint chair of the parliamentary advisory council on transport safety, if there is a problem with police being "more interested in finding somebody to prosecute than necessarily determining the cause of the accident".

Ellman responded: "There are certainly difficulties with assessing the causes of accidents, and perhaps decisions are taken very quickly when a rather longer period of assessment is required."
