HC Deb 23 June 1937 vol 325 c1215W
Mr. Groves

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the danger to the public waiting for tramcars or attempting to cross the road opposite the Bow Read Underground Railway station, and that tramcars stop for passengers to board or alight 20 feet from the refuge provided; and whether he will initiate discussions with the local highways authorities to ensure a greater degree of safety at this spot?

Mr. Burgin

The difficulties experienced by tramway passengers in this locality are well known and discussions are proceeding between the local authority and the London Passenger Transport Board. I am prepared to consider any proposal which the authority may submit.
