HC Deb 07 November 1939 vol 353 c92W
Sir G. Mitcheson

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the inconvenience to travellers owing to the inadequate starring of the inquiry office at many railway termini; and whether he will represent to the railway executive the need of improvement in this direction?

Captain Wallace

I am aware that in the early days of the war there was a certain amount of delay at inquiry offices in some parts of the country. This was mainly due to the great increase in the number of inquiries which followed the introduction of completely new timetables. Staffs at most of the inquiry offices at large stations have been augmented and the matter will be kept under review. If my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind and will let me have particulars, I will gladly have inquiries made.
