HC Deb 20 March 1928 vol 215 cc200-1

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that the Great Western Railway Company have discontinued the passenger train service on the branch line between Blackmill and Gilfach Goch, Glamorganshire, and substituted a very unsatisfactory road motor service; and whether, in view of the inconvenience caused to the mining population of about 15,000 in and about Gilfach Goch, he will take steps to have this passenger train service restored without delay?

Colonel ASHLEY

I understand that the passenger train service referred to by the hon. Member was withdrawn by the railway company in consequence of the small number of passengers using it, but that in view of the representations received, the company have agreed to reinstate it.
