HC Deb 20 February 1922 vol 150 cc1556-8W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport what progress has been made with and what is the present position of the negotiations between the various railway companies serving the Broadway Station, at Ealing, as to the availability of tickets interchangeably; and will he take steps to prevent a continuance of the injustice of requiring payment of excess fares by the Central London Railway Extension on a District or Picadilly tube railway ticket and vice versâ when, owing to the absence of directions, a passenger at one of the interchangeable tube stations, e.g., Oxford Circus, has proceeded by a line other than that for which his ticket has been issued?


I am informed that negotiations are still proceeding between the companies concerned with a view to overcoming the difficulty to which the hon. Baronet draws attention, and I hope that some solution will speedily be reached.
