42. Mr. T. WILSON
asked the Minister of Munitions if he is aware that the 50 per cent, increase in the railway fares inflicts hardship on munition workers who are employed at a considerable distance from their homes; and whether he will make arrangements that will enable these work people to return home at week-ends at single fare and a third as they could prior to the increase in the fares?
§ Sir W. EVANS
This matter is under the consideration of the Board of Trade, to whom I have made representations on the subject.
