HC Deb 01 March 1920 vol 126 c11
49. Mr. ATKEY

asked the Minister of Transport what is the present estimated cost of re-opening the closed exit from the Midland Railway opposite Trent Street, Nottingham; will he give details showing how it is arrived at; and what he net cost would be after allowing for the saving to the Exchequer which would follow the employment of discharged and demobilised sailors or soldiers now drawing out-of-work donations, and also taking credit for the contribution of £100 per annum offered by Boots Cash Chemists, Limited, as an acknowledgment of the convenience which the re-opening of the exit would provide to many hundreds of their employés?


I am asking the Midland Railway Company to furnish me with a revised estimate of the cost to them, and I will communicate with the hon. Gentleman after I have received their reply.

Captain LOSEBY

Cannot the hon. Gentleman spare the House a repetition of the very painful details of this controversy by making something in the nature of a concession to the right hon. Gentleman?


Would the hon. Gentleman also take into account the amount of money that would be saved by the elimination of this weekly conundrum from the Question Paper?
