HC Deb 13 February 1917 vol 90 c438
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?


This matter is under the consideration of the Board of Trade, to whom I have made representations on the subject.
