asked the Minister of Transport whether trolley-omnibuses are likely to run through Leyton; and, if so, when and along what routes?

I have received the following information:(1) Trolley-omnibuses will probably commence running in Leyton in April next from Chingford Mount to Victoria and Albert Docks via Stratford and also via Wanstead Flats.

(2) The Board anticipate that in the summer the trolley-omnibus service now running between Chingford Road (Billet Road) and Lea Bridge Road via Highams Hill and Markhouse Road will be extended via Church Road, Grange Park Road and Wanstead Flats to Canning Town.

(3) The Board are seeking powers to run trolley-omnibuses in Lea Bridge Road, Leytonstone Road and Whipps Cross Road.
