§ MR. WARDLE (Stockport)
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General if his attention has been called to the difficulty that a number of postal servants employed at St. Martin's-le-Grand, and living in the North of London, experience in getting to work at 5 a.m., seeing that the first train of the morning service is due to arrive at Aldersgate Street at 5.8 a.m.; and whether he will take up the matter with the Great Northern Railway Company with a view to getting them to run the train earlier, or to run another train to the City which would enable the men to get to work at 5 a.m.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
No representation has been made to me on this subject. Post Office servants not infrequently apply through their associations, or direct, to the railway companies, when they think a case can be made out for additional or earlier train services.
§ MR. WARDLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that representations have already been made to the companies, and that there are over 1,000 post I employees who live in the North of London?
