HC Deb 25 July 1929 vol 230 cc1540-1W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is in a position to say if any representations have been made to him for the reconditioning of Fenchurch Street railway station and the railway to Southend-on-Sea; and whether any such proposal includes electrification?


I have not yet received any recent representations on the matters referred to by my hon. Friend, but the London, Midland and Scottish Railway Act of this year foreshadowed a scheme of improved railway communication between London and Southend in lieu of the electrification provided for in the Midland Railway Act, 1912.
