HC Deb 22 May 1957 vol 570 c1222
67. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what report he has now received from the Transport Users Consultative Committee regarding the overcrowding and congestion of underground and steam transport conveying passengers to and from Leyton; and to what extent the report indicates that overcrowding has increased or diminished in recent months.

Mr. Watkinson

No report has been made to me, but I understand that the London Committee's findings on this question will be considered by the Central Committee at its meeting on 9th July.

Mr. Sorensen

Can the Minister do anything to speed this matter up, because as one who has experienced it sometimes himself, I know that the congestion is certainly extremely grievous and causes great hardship to numbers of people passing through the Borough of Leyton?

Mr. Watkinson

I know this is a difficult problem, and I shall draw the attention of the Central Committee to what the hon. Member has said.
