HC Deb 06 April 1909 vol 3 c924
Mr. STEADMAN (for Mr. Bowerman)

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that it is proposed to cease running a workmen's train which was put on 8th February last between Newport and the Western Valley, on the Great Western Railway; whether he can state the reasons for withdrawing this train; and whether, in view of the many workmen residing in Newport and at the various places en route who will be adversely affected by the stoppage of the service, he will make representations to the railway company with a view to its continuation?


I have communicated with the railway company, and am sending my hon. Friend a copy of their reply.
