HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 c974

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he has any reply from the railway companies as to whether they intend to grant during the ensuing holiday season any of the pre-War facilities, such as tourist tickets, cheaper day-return tickets, and Friday-till-Tuesday cheap week-end tickets; and, if not, will he urge on the companies that these facilities should be restored to the travelling public in order that seaside and holiday resorts may benefit by trade which such cheap tickets tend to bring to them?


The railway companies have under consideration the question of tourist ticket facilities and fares, and it is anticipated that an announcement will be made shortly; as regards cheaper day-return tickets and week-end tickets, the companies inform me that they do not see) their way at present to make any further concession.
