Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
This Committee was established on 3 September 1901 to inquire into whether it was advisable to adopt electric traction on any of the existing suburban or short country railways.

The report of the committee was adopted 11 December 1901. The Committee found that electricity had most assuredly won its place as an economic and effective motive power and that by adopting the electric system on the suburban lines there would be a considerable reduction in maintenance, labour, and consumption of fuel.
