HC Deb 26 April 1948 vol 450 c1W
3. Captain John Crowder

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is now prepared to give the London Transport Executive his approval under Section 4 (2) of the Transport Act, 1947, for the completion of the electrification of the Alexandra Palace line, having regard to the serious traffic congestion in this district.

Mr. Barnes

I am informed by the British Transport Commission that they are preparing a programme of development, to be settled on lines to be approved by me under the terms of Section 4 (2) of the Transport Act. Any such programme must have full regard to other urgent works and the need to restrict capital investment, so I cannot say at present when this particular work can be undertaken.
