HC Deb 12 November 1918 vol 110 c2555W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the dissatisfaction of the Vaynor and Penderyn Rural District Council and the Merthyr Tydfil Corporation and the inhabitants generally with the car service of the Merthyr Electric Traction Company owing to the inconvenience caused by the suspension of through-running on this route; is he aware that the coal saving is practically nil as the street is level all the way and is 666 yards; will he take steps to ensure that the Merthyr Electric Traction Company operates the Cefn car service so as to run to the Graham Street terminus, Merthyr, as before; is he aware that the company have no waiting-room at Pontmorlais terminus, although under the company's order of 1899, Section 48, they have to provide and maintain a waiting-room, and that this Order has not been carried out?


Representations on the subject have been made to the Board of Trade by the rural district council, and I am sending to the hon. Member a copy of these communications which have been sent to the council and the company respectively by the Tramways (Board of Trade) Committee, by whom the question has been investigated.
