HC Deb 12 December 1922 vol 159 c2644W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the. Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the inadequate facilities for travelling from Hackney and Stoke Newington to other parts of London, especially in the mornings; whether any scheme has been put forward by the Great Eastern Railway Company and the North London Railway Company for the electrification of their lines; and, if not, whether he can urge upon those companies the need for some action to secure further facilities to the travelling public?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

No specific scheme for the electrification of the line referred to has been put forward by either of the companies named. I have, however, communicated the hon. and gallant Baronet's question to both companies.
