HC Deb 22 April 1926 vol 194 c1386
70. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that special favour is being shown to the street railways by limiting the omnibus competition, he will consider the advisability of requiring the abolition of dead ends by taking up those rail lines that do not admit of through traffic in central London?

Colonel ASHLEY

The tramway lines to which lily hon. and gallant Friend refers were laid down under statutory authority, and I have no powers to require their removal.
