HC Deb 01 May 1922 vol 153 c974

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether his Department can bring any pressure upon the railway companies in order to compel them to grant cheaper railway fares to the travelling public; and whether he will urge on the railway companies, in view of the reduction of wages and other costs of working, the necessity of at once reducing the percentage of 75 per cent, now charged extra on the pre-War cost of ordinary fares?


I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to him on 13th March, to which I regret I can add nothing.
