§ MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)
To ask the Secretary to the Board of Trade if he will bring his influence to bear upon the directors of the North Eastern and Great Northern Railways with a view to their giving a station master and facilities sufficient for the requirements of the district at the station of Park Drain on their joint line between Doncaster and Lincoln.
(Answered by Mr. Bonar Law.) The Board of Trade have communicated with the Great Northern and Great Eastern Joint Committee on whose line Park Drain Station is situated, and the Committee have informed the Board that a 285 very small amount of traffic is dealt with at this station, and that it is not considered that any increase in the expense of working the station would be justified. It is added that the station is managed by a responsible foreman who is under the control of the neighbouring station master at Haxey.
