HC Deb 09 November 1920 vol 134 c1022W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the impossibility of making a halt on the Great Western Railway in Duncane Road and the suffering and inconvenience caused to many disabled men, he will arrange for a frequent service of motor omnibuses from the present termini of No. 7 route at Wormwood Scrubs and No. 11 and No. 49, etc., at Shepherds Bush Green, respectively, to the Special Surgical Hospital in Duncane Road?


I beg to remind the hon. Member that the medical superintendent of the Ducane, Road hospital stated in a letter to the "Times" on the 5th November that he had concluded arrangements for the provision of additional motor transport to carry patients to and from the end of Ducane Road, where trams and omnibuses stop, and, if necessary, to Shepherd's Bush Green, and, he added, that these arrangements will completely fill the needs of the hospital.
