HC Deb 13 November 1919 vol 121 c529W

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the excessive overcrowding of trains on the Great Eastern Railway between Liverpool Street and Chingford every morning, and from 5 to 7.30 every evening, when as many as thirty people are often compressed into each compartment; and if he can hold out any hope of extra trains being put upon this branch during tho rush hours both morning and evening?


My attention has been called to this congestion, and I Am informed that the railway company has strengthened the composition of the trains and has provided additional trains. The hon. Member will appreciate that the periods he mentions are the busiest of the day.
