HC Deb 14 October 1946 vol 427 c104W
32. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that, although the journey from Inverness to Euston takes 16 hours, no restaurant car facilities are provided; and what steps he proposes to take to restore this service.

Mr. Barnes

The railway companies are restoring restaurant cars as quickly as possible. A restaurant car is now attached to the 8.40 a.m. train from Inverness at Preston at 6.21 p.m. and as soon as possible a restaurant car will be attached to this train at Perth at 12.6 p.m. A restaurant car is also attached to the 7.20 p.m. from Euston at Perth at 5.5 a.m. Shortage of staff at present prevents the restoration of a restaurant car on the 4.30 p.m. from Inverness.
