HC Deb 28 June 1917 vol 95 c550W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that owing to the closing of Bowling Station, on the Caledonian Railway, a number of shipyard and munition workers have difficulty in getting punctually to their work in the morning, and have to pay an increased sum per week for travelling; and whether, in view of the fact that the train by which they used to travel still runs past Bowling Station, and that the station agent is still in residence, he will arrange for the train to be stopped at Bowling at 5.30 in the morning and for a corresponding return train in the evening to be stopped at that station?


The Board of Trade are arranging with the railway company for the station to be opened, so as to provide for workers a service of one train in the morning and one train in the evening.
