HC Deb 25 June 1908 vol 191 c94
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.


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.


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?


If any representations are made to me, I will inquire into them.
