HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c123W
114. Mr. Edward Evans

asked the Minister of Transport in view of the inadequate service of trains between Beccles and Bungay and the infrequency of the omnibus services, he will arrange to have these considerably improved.

Mr. Barnes

There are now five trains in each direction between Beccles and Bungay on weekdays. Before the war there were six regular trains on weekdays and two on Sundays. In present circumstances, I should not be justified in asking the railway company to increase the service. The omnibus services are almost up to prewar strength on weekdays. Any specific demand, supported by evidence of need, will be examined, but no further improvement is likely until an additional vehicle becomes available.
