§ 61. Mr. GROVES
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger to the travelling public resultant from the fact that many of the trains operating on the Inner Circle of the District Railway are still without pneumatically controlled doors and that, therefore, on many journeys the doors are not closed and passengers are exposed to danger and the discomfort of cold and draught; and whether he will make representations to the London Passenger Transport Board to provide additional platform staff to ensure the closing of the train doors?
§ Mr. HORE BELISHA
I am in correspondence with the board on the subject and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
