asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether his attention has been called to the difficulty experienced by troops and others in locating King's Cross, Euston, and St. Pancras stations, particularly in the black-out; and whether he will have a shaded illuminated sign placed outside each station as well as the names printed up in prominent positions?

I have received no complaints that troops and others have difficulty in finding King's Cross, Euston and St. Pancras. I will, however, consider whether anything can be done to indicate by illuminated signs the street approaches to these stations.

Is the Minister aware that night clubs can have illuminated signs, and that there should be no difficulty about stations having them?

That is a matter for the Minister of Home Security. I will do the best I can.
