HC Deb 17 March 1926 vol 193 cc397-8
Lieut.-Commander BURNEY

I beg leave to present a Petition, signed by no fewer than 97,230 citizens of West London, showing that, whereas efforts are being made to draw the attention of this honourable House to the proposed reduction rendering travelling facilities inadequate in West London, and whereas proposals have now been submitted to the Minister of Transport to curtail travelling facilities by reducing omnibus services on the Uxbridge Road and other West London roads, the petitioners pray that, pending complete ownership by a public authority of all trams, omnibuses add tubes in the London traffic area, no steps should be taken which would increase the difficulties of the travelling public, and tend to leave them entirely dependent upon a privately - owned monopoly.

Lieut.-Colonel Sir FREDERICK HALL

I beg to present a Petition signed by 535,755 citizens of London praying in the same sense as referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Uxbridge (Lieut.-Commander Burney).

Colonel APPLIN

I beg to present, a Petition signed by 111,961 citizens of West London, also in the same terms.
