HC Deb 03 December 1919 vol 122 c424W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the serious overcrowding which takes place on the Metropolitan District Railway from West Ham and Charing Cross between the hours of 1 and 2 p.m.; and whether be will bring pressure to bear on this company to increase the number of trains run between the above hours on that line, in view of the fact that there are comparatively long intervals between the trains?


I am told by the railway company that the records do not show any habitual overcrowding between the points named during the time spoken of. I am asking the company particularly to watch the point brought to notice.
