1. Marylebone Suburban Services

(a) Commencement of service

Mr. Lawrence stated that the shortage of staff was approaching a critical stage and to overcome the difficulty he had three projects in mind for consideration before the complete diesel multiple unit service was introduced.

Amersham - Aylesbury shuttle service - Originally proposed to commence in June, 1961.  L.T.E. now propose it should commence in September, 1961.

High Wycombe Line - Investigation proceeding into the possibility of introducing a multiple unit service in September, 1960 to ameliorate shortage of firemen at Neasden.

Aylesbury - Princes Risborough Line - Introduction of multiple unit service would save four firemen.

It was necessary for the question of maintenance facilities for these services, prior to the completion of Marylebone Carriage Shed, to be considered and it was agreed that Mr. Lawrence pursue the whole question with representatives of the departments concerned and report at the next meeting.
