§ 34. Mr. LEACH
asked the Prime Minister if he will receive a deputation from the local authority of the City of Bradford for the purpose of showing the city's need for fresh railway facilities, how the city has been neglected in this respect, and how in any negotiations he may undertake with the railway interests for the provision of new additions to the rail arteries of the nation he may be strengthened by the evidence from Bradford?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
I cannot myself undertake to receive a deputation on this question, but my hon. and gallant Friend the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport, with wham I have been in communication, would be glad to hear any representations from the Bradford Corporation. The hon. Member will realise that the Government have no power to require the companies to take action.
