HC Deb 13 July 1926 vol 198 cc248-9W

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience caused by the closing of the York Road Station of the Piccadilly and Brompton Railway; whether he is aware of the fact that the average takings at this station have been much higher than the takings of other stations on this line, the closing of which is still under consideration; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made as to whether York Road Station could be opened at least with a modified service at an early date?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am aware that the closing of the station to which the hon. Member refers has caused inconvenience, and I have been in communication with the railway company on the subject. The company hope to be in a position to re-open this station very soon.
