(Later:- Mr.Baker reported that the trial had not been fully satisfactory and further modifications were being made, and it was not at the moment possible to forecast when the service could commence. The Chief Mechanical Engineer had arranged for a meeting to be held on May 4th to decide upon any action necessary.)
Messrs. Lawrence and Salmon commented that it would be desirable for a minimum of two months' advance publicity be given before the services were introduced.
The Chairman said that, although he realised the responsibility for the commissioning of the trains was mainly with the British Transport Commission, he could not stress too strongly the need for a sense of urgency in getting these trains into service, and asked that no effort should be spared to assist the B.T.C. in this matter.
