Southeastern Rail Services (28 Jan 2016)

Bob Neill: the heart of London’s theatre-land. Many London commuters, certainly from Chislehurst in my constituency, will go up to the theatre from time to time. The last direct train to stations such as Elmstead Woods and Chislehurst leaves at 10.36 in the evening. Otherwise, anyone who has gone to a show in town will have to wait until gone midnight. That puts huge pressure on them, because...

Bernard Jenkin: ...bus company Cedric Coaches, whose drivers use the junction every day, comments: “I have seen many near misses where cars have been edging out to see past my bus as I wait to turn right towards Elmstead and have made traffic on the A120 swerve to miss them.” Following a spate of accidents, works were carried out in February and April 2012 with the aim of making those junctions safe—I...

Bernard Jenkin: ...'s record on building social housing and reducing homelessness is a good deal worse than that of the last Conservative Government? May I serve notice on him that the people of Great Bromley, Elmstead and Frating do not want a Labour-inspired new town imposed on rural Essex? Rural north Essex is not for sale.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Transport and the Regions: Rail Services (Kent) (9 Feb 1999)

John Reid: hon. Friend's comments. The tragedy is that, almost every day, we hear of another horror story about one of our railway services.

Smith Houses (29 Mar 1983)

Mr David Bevan: ...that are in an extremely bad state, in which walls are moving and floors heaving, and some that are fit only for the bulldozer.
