HC Deb 17 March 1925 vol 181 c2100W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the insufficiency of provision of seats upon the platforms of London tube railways and the danger to life caused thereby; and whether he will take steps with a view to proper provision being made of seats for passengers?

Colonel ASHLEY

I do not think any question of danger arises in this connection, and I would point out that at most of the stations on tube railways the frequency of the train service makes any very considerable provision of seating accommodation unnecessary. If, however, my hon. Friend cares to furnish me with the names of any stations he may have specially in mind, and with particulars of the circumstances which render an increase in the number of platform seats desirable, I shall be happy to bring the matter to the notice of the London Electric Railway Company.
