HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 cc1638-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the Glasgow summer holidays commence on 18th July, when all public works are closed for ten days; that the stations are very congested by the large number of holiday makers; whether he is aware that there is a passenger terminus station at Govan which can be used to supply the requirements of a population of 100,000, which is at present closed, necessitating those people travelling four miles to the Glasgow stations, and passing this station on their way; and whether he will give instructions to the Railway Executive to open this station during the holiday season and run special trains, and thereby relieve the congestion elsewhere, as well as meet the convenience of the inhabitants of Govan?


I have communicated with the Glasgow and South-western Railway Company on this matter, and have received a reply, which I will communicate to the hon. Member.
