HC Deb 06 July 1932 vol 268 cc427-8
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 raised, and cause hardship to workmen who have to travel by this route four times daily?


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.


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.


My information is that they were not raised by the Commissioners at all. The case never came before the Commissioners.
