§ 8. Sir PHILIP MAGNUS
asked the President of the Board of Trade approximately when railway fares will be reduced to the amount printed on railway tickets as the charge for the journey; and, if not, whether he can arrange that the fare printed on the tickets shall correspond with the amount charged, and so prevent disappointment and the possible errors of passengers in computing the correct fare?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I am afraid that I cannot give any indication of the date on which the existing railway fares are likely to be reduced. The suggestion made in the second part of the question will be carefully considered, but any alteration in the present system might cause more confusion than it would avoid.
