HC Deb 25 March 1912 vol 36 c25

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to a circular issued by the London and North-Western Railway Company abolishing second-class carriages between London and Harrow from the 18th instant; and whether, in view of the breach of contract with season ticket holders this involves, he proposes to take any action in the matter?


The railway company inform me that second-class carriages have been withdrawn temporarily from the Harrow trains, with the object of enabling the passenger accommodation in the trains still running to be increased. The company further state that any second-class season ticket holder who has to travel third class during the period for which the second-class carriages are withdrawn can have a refund of the difference of fare, and that the season ticket holders have been so informed.
