HC Deb 10 November 1943 vol 393 cc1170-1W
Captain Duncan

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport why adequate arrangements were not made by his Department to inform passengers for a town of which he has been informed and other stations on the same railway, from a certain station on the morning of Saturday, 6th November, that there had been a bomb on the line and that traffic diversion was necessary and why one trainload of passengers was left in the train standing at the terminal station for nearly an hour after its due time of departure and then informed that the train would not run; and what steps he is taking to prevent a recurrence of such inconvenience to travellers, especially Service men?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I am making inquiries, and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
