HC Deb 22 December 1915 vol 77 c464

(by Private Notice): I beg to ask the Minister of Munitions whether any arrangements have been made to enable munition workers to get the advantage of cheap bookings for any short holiday they may receive at Christmas?


as stated in the reply given to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for Deptford on 14th December, where reduced week-end tickets are under existing circumstances issued to workmen, available from Saturday to Monday, the period of such tickets will be extended at Christmas time so as to make them available on Friday, 24th December, until Tuesday, 28th December. The issue of the tickets referred to is made only to munition workers in Government or controlled establishments, upon direct application from the firm, and is subject in all cases to the consent of the superintendent of the line.
