HC Deb 25 March 1920 vol 127 c605
70. Brigadier-General SURTEES

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the fact that the underground railway companies of London compel passengers carrying portable typewriting machines, which in many instances only weigh a few pounds, to take out bicycle tickets at a charge of 2s. 4d., however short the distance; if this charge is general throughout the railway system of the country; and if he will communicate with the heads of the offending companies in order to have this charge abolished?


I have been asked to answer this question. I am in communication with the railway companies upon the question of charges for typewriters.
