HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 cc926-7W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused to the inhabitants of Cole-ford and district, Gloucestershire, by the removal of the railway between Cole-ford and Monmouth for war purposes; and if he will take steps to restore the railway to its pre-war state as early as possible, and thus provide railway facilities in this area as existed in prewar times?


As soon as conditions allow, the re-opening of this line will be considered, but owing to the shortage of materials to replace those removed in connection with the War, the maintenance of main lines fell in arrear, and as materials become available this work must have precedence.
