§ 38. Mr. TURTON (for Mr. OSWALD LEWIS)
asked the Minister of Transport whether one of the conditions of Government assistance in the extension of the tube railway from Highgate will be the provision of a tube station in Highgate village and the consequent abolition of the present tramway service up Highgate Hill?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Captain Austin Hudson)
The details of the scheme for extending the tube railway from its present terminus under Junction Road to East Finchley by way of Highgate Station on the London and North Eastern Railway have not yet been fully settled; but I am informed that it would not be practicable to include a station at Highgate village owing to the depth of the railway below the surface, and the need for avoiding sharp curves in the tracks.
