HC Deb 01 February 1995 vol 253 cc673-4W
Ms Jowell

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will ensure that through ticketing facilities will continue to be available at(a) Nunhead, (b) Peckham Rye, (c) Denmark Hill, (d) West Dulwich, (e) North Dulwich and (f) Sydenham Hill stations.

Mr. Watts

[holding answer 24 January 1995]: None of these stations currently offer a complete through ticketing service because they are not linked to the computer seat reservation system which is essential for some tickets. All are able to offer through tickets not requiring seat reservations.

The rail regulator is consulting on the requirements which should be imposed on station operators. The regulator and I are committed to easy access to through tickets for passengers.
