asked the Minister of War Transport the number of passenger trains running between Bridlington and Leeds, and Leeds and Bridlington; and will he consider improving the service to assist commercial travellers and business men and women who reside in and about Bridlington and work in Leeds.

From Bridlington to Leeds there are no through trains, but there are 12 services on Saturdays and 10 on other weekdays which involve a change en route. From Leeds to Bridlington in addition to one through train, there are 10 services on Saturdays and 9 on other weekdays which involve a change en route. I am advised that the railway company is satisfied that the traffic does not warrant the provision of additional through trains or other services in present circumstances.
