HC Deb 13 February 1933 vol 274 c652W

asked the Minister of Transport the present position of the proposals to instal electric traction on the suburban lines in East London and beyond?


The railway company concerned have informed me that they have schemes of London suburban electrification under consideration, and that in the event of the London Passenger Transport Bill becoming law they will be prepared to submit proposals to the Standing Joint Committee of the Transport Board and the railway companies which the Bill proposes to set up, but I am not fully aware of the details of the proposals which the company are likely to make.
