HC Deb 26 February 1894 vol 21 c1038
MR. CLOUGH (Portsmouth)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the dangerous condition of the structure known as Moorgate Street Station, owned by the Metropolitan Railway Company; whether he is aware that the said Railway Company has recently been summoned to the Guildhall for allowing certain portions of the said station to be in a dangerous condition; whether he is aware that the glass roofing of a considerable portion of the said station has had to be removed because it was dangerous; and would he state what steps he is prepared to take in the interest of public safety?


I have seen a report of the proceedings at the Guildhall Police Court, wherein it is stated that the station in question is to be pulled down, and that the roof is condemned as a dangerous structure. The Order was made for the necessary work to be completed in 14 days. No representation whatever has been made to me on the subject.
