§ 59. Mr. OTHO NICHOLSON
asked the Ministry of Transport whether he has made representations to secure a connection between the new Charing Cross station and Waterloo Station sufficient to ensure through running from the Kentish to the Surrey suburban electric services and the avoidance of terminal congestion?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The question of a railway connection between the new Charing Cross Station and Waterloo Station, to ensure through-running between the Kentish Surrey suburban services of the Southern Railway Company, was discussed with the Company when the plans for the new Charing Cross Station were under consideration, and the conclusion was reached that the travelling public would not derive sufficient benefit to warrant such a connection being established.
