HC Deb 16 March 1893 vol 10 c236
CAPTAIN BOWLES (Middlesex, Enfield)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he is prepared to take any steps for preventing the overcrowding of workmen's trains on the Great Eastern Railway between Enfield and London?


Between 4.40 a.m. and 7.50 a.m. 13 trains arrive at Liverpool Street from either Enfield or Lower Edmonton. Of these, eight are 2d. trains and five are half-fare trains. It appears that certain trains are more popular than others and that there is a pressure upon these. It is not a question that I have any power to deal with.
