HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 c3181W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether, in the interest of a large area round Winsham, Somerset, and of the numerous unemployed resident therein, he will endeavour to obtain a reconsideration of the decision given regarding the suggested halt and siding at Winsham by the London and South Western Railway officials?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

The Ministry have no statutory power to intervene in this matter, which is one within the discretion of the railway company. I am, however, bringing my hon. Friend's question to the company's notice.
