HC Deb 26 October 1944 vol 404 cc368-9W
Colonel Medlicott

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware of the overcrowding on the road transport services in East Norfolk and, particularly, between Norwich and Great Yarmouth; and if he will take steps to increase and improve the facilities, particularly in view of the approach of winter.

Mr. Noel-Baker

I am aware that there was some overcrowding on the omnibus services in East Norfolk during the summer months. Relief omnibuses were provided, so far as there was staff available to man them. I am glad to say that traffic loadings in the area are now considerably reduced, and the road and rail services are considered to be adequate. If, however, my hon. and gallant Friend will give me evidence of any continuing difficulties which there may be, I will cause inquiries to be made.
