§ Mr. BARKER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if he is aware that there is no railway station at Cwmcarn, Monmouthshire; that the inhabitants have been pressing the Great Western Railway Company for many years to erect a station there; that there are several thousand population residing at Cwmcarn and that there is no station within nearly two miles; and will he use his good offices with the Great Western Railway Company with a view to getting a station made there?
§ Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY
The Ministry of Transport has no statutory powers in this matter, which is one for the consideration of the railway company. I am, however, bringing the hon. Member's suggestion to the company's notice.
