§ 34. Colonel DAY
asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been drawn to the overcrowding, with the resulting danger to the public, that takes 1035 place during the peak hours on trains leaving Charing Cross and London Bridge stations; and will he take steps with a view to the augmentation of such services in the South-East London area?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
My attention has not been drawn recently to this matter, but I have communicated with the railway company, who inform me that, in spite of recent improvements in the services, certain trains are still somewhat overcrowded, and that they hope to introduce some further improvements when the time-table is next revised.
§ Colonel DAY
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider making representations to the railway company that the trains which leave Charing Cross should not stop at London Bridge, because that is where the greater part of the overcrowding takes place, after the trains are full?
