§ 34. Mr. CAIRNS
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that in the waiting-rooms of the North Eastern Railway Company in the Morpeth area there are no fires; and, if so, will he see that during the winter months, in the interest of the public health, fires are made, as the public have to wait over an hour sometimes?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
I am in communication with the railway company on this matter, but, as the hon. Member is aware, strict economy in coal consumption is still desirable in the national interest.
