HC Deb 07 December 1938 vol 342 c1166
61. Mr. Butcher

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the decision of the London and North Eastern Railway Company to withdraw at an early date over 100 trains from its schedule of services, he proposes to consult with road transport organisations to ensure that adequate travelling facilities are provided for the public?

Mr. Burgin

The Traffic Commissioners will, no doubt, take into consideration, when considering applications for road service licences, any representations which may be made to them that the public are not obtaining adequate transport facilities because of the withdrawal of certain trains to which my hon. Friend refers.
