§ 31. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will instruct the Traffic Commissioners, southern area, to inquire into the omnibus fares between Farnham Common and Farnham Royal which have lately been 428 raised, and cause hardship to workmen who have to travel by this route four times daily?
§ Mr. PYBUS
I have caused inquiries to be made and understand that the question of reduced fares for workpeople between Farnham Royal and Farnham Common has not been before the Traffic Commissioners in connection with any application for a licence. I am causing a copy of this question and of my reply to be forwarded, however, to the Traffic Commissioners concerned for their information.
§ Sir A. KNOX
Is the Minister aware that these fares were raised by the Traffic Commissioners about six months ago? They were originally a penny, and were raised to twopence.
