§ 78. Mr. SITCH
asked the Minister of Transport if and when he proposes to reconsider the present heavy charges made for the carriage of bicycles by rail, with the view to some reasonable reduction therein, having regard to the great dissatisfaction felt among large numbers of persons accustomed to take their machines with them on their holidays?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of TRANSPORT (Mr. Neal)
A deputation was received from the National Cyclists' Union on 23rd March, and they were told that, although no immediate alteration would be made, their case would receive consideration in the forthcoming general revision of rates.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Is it the case that at the present time it costs far more to take a bicycle five miles than a passenger?
