§ 15. Major BARNETT
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the Chalk Farm stations of the North London and London and North Western Railway Companies, which were closed during the war, are still closed to passenger traffic; and, in view of the grave inconvenience to the public, will he take steps to secure the reopening of these stations at an early date?
§ Mr. NEAL
I have been asked to answer this question. At the present time alterations are being carried out in connection with the widening of the London and North Western line between Queen's Park and Chalk Farm, resulting in Chalk Farm Station being remodelled, and the railway company state that during the process of these alterations it would be a very difficult matter to maintain a service of passenger trains on the slow lines between Willesden and Chalk Farm. The matter is, however, under the consideration of the Advisory Committee on London Traffic in connection with their general review of the stations closed during the War.
