§ Mr. R. C. Morrison
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that morning and evening railway service between Hackney Downs and Northumberland Park, Tottenham, is inadequate and with results detrimental to the health of elderly 43W men and women employed on war work; and whether he will take steps to improve the service?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
I am not aware that the morning and evening railway service between Hackney Downs and Northumberland Park, Tottenham, is inadequate. There are trains from Hackney Downs each morning at 5.24, 6.40, 7.17, 7.44, 7.56 and 8.33, and trains in the evening at 5.27, 6.16 and 7.37. The journey is one of only 12 or 13 minutes' duration and I am informed that the trains are not overcrowded. If my hon. Friend has received any specific complaints, I shall be happy to have them examined.
