§ MR. WARDLE (Stockport)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the difficulties which passengers on the Metropolitan Railway whose journey necessitates changing at Baker Street Station between the hours of 8.30 a.m. and 9 a.m. have to experience in getting from one train to another; whether he is aware that the crowds of passengers have to pass through a narrow iron gate, which results in a scramble; whether he is aware that the trains at this time of the day provided to carry passengers to the City are few in number and of insufficient length, thereby causing overcrowding and inconvenience; and whether, in view of these facts, he proposes to take any, and, if so, what action.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. CHURCHILL,) Dundee
I have communicated with the railway company in the matter to which my hon. friend calls attention, and have received a reply of which I am forwarding him a copy.
§ MR. CHURCHILL
I will send the hon. Member also a copy of the Company's reply, which will give him an answer to his Question.
