HC Deb 10 April 1922 vol 153 c29
47. Mr. L. LYLE

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether standing in public omnibuses is to be continued; if so, whether he will state the reason why it is not possible to put on adequate vehicles to permit all members of the public to obtain seats for which they have paid; and whether he will see that this concession to the companies, which was a War measure, is now withdrawn?


I have been asked to answer this question. The whole subject is under consideration, and I am in consultation with all parties interested in the matter.

Viscount CURZON

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that if the suggestion made in this question were carried out, it would result in enormous inconvenience and possible danger to the health of a great number of the inhabitants of London?


I am aware of that.
