HC Deb 28 July 1927 vol 209 cc1458-9
68. Mr. W. BAKER

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the increasing difficulty presented by road transport, he will approach the Southern Railway Company with a view to improving the suburban train service, especially between Cannon Street and Croydon during the business hours, in order to enable persons living in the neighbourhood of South Croydon to travel by rail instead of by road and to enable the railway company to more successfully compete with the road services?

Viscount CURZON

No complaints have recently been made to my right hon. Friend with regard to the service between Cannon Street and Croydon during business hours, but, if the hon. Member will furnish him with particulars of the suggestions he has in mind, they will be brought to the notice of the company.
