HC Deb 07 December 1922 vol 159 c2039W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he will consider the desirability of inducing the Great Western Railway Company to extend the railway from Pwllheli on through the Lleyn peninsula, seeing that such extension would provide useful work for the unemployed and in addition secure efficient means of access to a large agricultural area and facilitate the development thereof?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

This is a matter for the consideration of the Great Western Railway Company, and I am not aware of any proposal on their part to seek the necessary statutory power to extend their line as suggested. I am, however, bringing the hon. Member's question to the company's notice.
