asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the increasing need of escalators in a great many of the more central underground stations; how many and which stations are to be fitted with escalators in the near future: and are now in process of being installed?

Colonel ASHLEY

I am informed by the railway company that escalators are about to be installed at Highgate Station and are being installed at Camden Town Station; that a scheme coming before Parliament in the present Session will comprise their installation at Leicester Square Station; and that the possibility of installing escalators at other stations is being considered.
