HC Deb 28 June 1939 vol 349 c435W
Mr. Oliver

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in connection with the application of the Nottingham Corporation under their (Trolley Vehicles) Order, 1934, he will insist on the necessity of trollifying the direct route into the city from the districts of Ripley, Heanor and Langley Mill, thereby assisting to reduce the abnormal length of time of one hour and eight minutes it now takes to travel 14 miles; and if, in view of the fact that workpeople from these and intervening townships are in some instances wholly dependent on trolley vehicles for their travelling facilities to and from their work into the city of Nottingham, he will emphasise the need and urgency of an early consideration of this matter?

Captain Wallace

The application is now before me and I am communicating with the corporation about the matters raised by the hon. Member.
