§ 62. Mr. LEONARD LYLE
asked the Minister of Transport if he would give the House a broad outline of the steps that are being taken to permanently improve the travelling facilities between inner and outer London; and if he will specifically state whether any immediate steps are being taken to relieve) the overcrowding existing on the route from West Ham to the City?
Sir R. WILLIAMS
The subject of the improvement of the travelling facilities referred to is one of the chief matters which will engage the attention of the Advisory Committee on London Traffic which has recently been appointed, under the Chairmanship of the hon. Member for Hornsey. The increase of rolling stock which the Metropolitan District Railway Company has on order will, it is hoped, alleviate the congestion on this as on other routes.
