62. Colonel BURN
asked the Minister of Transport what steps are being taken towards the issue of cheap railway tickets during the Easter holidays?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
I regret to say that I entertain little hope that it will be possible this year to give the cheap travelling facilities in question. The matter is securing most earnest and sympathetic consideration.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the prosperity of many seaside towns depends on the concession or withdrawal of those facilities; 1298 and will he make a special effort to do something?
§ Mr. BILLING
Will the right hon. Gentleman also consider the health of the children of the country, especially of the more or less poor classes, not the working classes?
