HC Deb 01 August 1935 vol 304 cc2830-1
58. Mr. DORAN

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that the London Passenger Transport Board has initiated a policy of scaling up workmen's and cheap travel facilities between the trains as against the tubes and omnibuses; that many districts in Tottenham are very adversely affected by this; and whether he will make representations to the Board on this matter?


If my hon. Friend will inform me of the alterations of fares which he has in mind, I will communicate with the Board on the subject.


I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his reply. Am I to understand that this action of the London Passenger Transport Board is the first instalment of Socialism as promised by Mr. Morrison?


I am not very clear what the action is. That is why I have asked the hon. Member to give me particulars.
