HC Deb 03 April 1922 vol 152 cc1869-70W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if he is aware of the unsatis- factory train service provided by the Midland Railway Company for the inhabitants living between Hemel Hempsted and Harpenden, Herts, and that there is no train service between 8 a.m. and 1.6 p.m.; and will he use his influence to get a more up-to-date service for the people living in this district?


My attention has not previously been drawn to this matter. The railway company inform me that the passenger traffic is very light, and that the running of additional trains is not justified. If the hon. Member is in a position to point to a serious demand for additional services, I shall be glad to place the information before the railway company.
