§ Mr. Wadsworth
asked the Minister of War Transport the number of passenger trains running between Bridlington and Leeds, and Leeds and Bridlington; and will he consider improving the service to assist commercial travellers and business men and women who reside in and about Bridlington and work in Leeds.
§ Mr. Barnes
From Bridlington to Leeds there are no through trains, but there are 12 services on Saturdays and 10 on other weekdays which involve a change en route. From Leeds to Bridlington in addition to one through train, there are 10 services on Saturdays and 9 on other weekdays which involve a change en route. I am advised that the railway company is satisfied that the traffic does not warrant the provision of additional through trains or other services in present circumstances.
