I'm east of EGGW Luton Airport and I'm cleared for the ILS RWY 08 approach via LUT transition (see this chart): ... -12-17.pdf

As I'm descending on the 256° back course there’s an Airbus A319 getting bigger on the glide slope and we almost collide just as I’m starting the procedure turn (sorry, no screenshot :( ). This left me wondering how such a situation would have been avoided in real life. Would ATC have control over this or would it be solely the responsibility of the pilots in command? Would I perhaps have been instructed to hold at LUT and be cleared from there with appropriate timing to slot into a gap on the glide slope. If so, how would the controller know how much time to allow for this?

This situation would have been prevented long before this by ATC. I'm assuming you were flying IFR, and barring any discrepancies between US and UK flight rules, ATC would have been responsible for maintaining spacing between you and other aircraft in the airspace.
