§ Mr. Irving
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the congestion at Euston station, due to the decision of the railway company not to issue platform tickets; and if he will take action on this question.
§ Mr. Barnes
No, Sir. The issue of platform tickets at Euston is suspended between 12 noon and 7 p.m. on Saturdays and between 7 p.m. and midnight on Sundays to ease platform working. I am informed that this does not cause any serious congestion outside the barriers, but the position will be carefully watched.
