HC Deb 02 June 1942 vol 380 c543W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of War Transport whether he is aware that the shortage of accommodation on the railways is seriously interfering with production due to delays and inconveniences to officials who have to visit Government headquarters; and whether he proposes to take any steps to improve the situation?

Mr. Noel-Baker

The unavoidable reduction of passenger services necessarily entails some discomfort and inconvenience, but I am not aware that any serious interference with production is resulting. If my hon. Friend has evidence to the contrary, I shall be glad to consider it.
