HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2379W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if he is aware that the continued closing of the railway through Tooting Junction causes inconvenience and loss of time to the inhabitants of the west and north wards of Mitcham; and if he will make urgent representations to the railway company that the line should be reopened to passenger traffic?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am informed by the Southern Railway Company that they are considering the question of re-opening this line for passenger traffic, in connection with the electrification of the suburban services of the South Eastern and Chatham section of their railway.
