HC Deb 06 March 1922 vol 151 c853

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether any applications have been received from any of the railway or tube companies serving the London area for financial grants for the purpose of extending or electrifying their suburban or other lines in the London district; if any such grants have been given; and, if so, can he state what amounts, and to which companies, and for which lines such financial help has been granted?


I am not aware of any application from these companies for a grant from public funds, and no grant has been made. Applications for guarantees under the Trade Facilities Act have been made by the South Eastern and Chatham and the London Electric Railway Companies and referred to the Advisory Committee appointed under the provisions of that Act, and are under consideration.
