HC Deb 30 June 1925 vol 185 c2217

asked the Minister of Transport if the Government intend to take any steps with regard to the electrification of the main railways?

Colonel ASHLEY

As the hon. Member is no doubt aware, the Government are considering the whole question of electricity. It may be assumed that any improvement in the supply and distribution of electricity will facilitate its use as a motive power on railways, as well as in other directions.
