HC Deb 25 June 1908 vol 191 c90
MR. BYLES (Salford, N.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to frequent complaints on the part of travellers on the District Railway arising out of the confusion, delays, and inconvenience attending the use of sliding doors, which are also alleged to constitute a serious danger to the travelling public; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter.


The Board of Trade are informed by the railway company that they are preparing to change all the present pneumatic apparatus controlling the movement of the doors, so that the doors can be worked by hand.
