HC Deb 12 June 1940 vol 361 c1248
14. Mr. Butcher

asked the Minister of Transport whether, to secure the maximum use of all accommodation, he will now withdraw first-class travelling facilities?

Sir J. Reith

I am advised by the Railway Executive Committee that first-class accommodation is now being used to such an extent that its withdrawal would not appreciably increase the accommodation available for passengers as a whole.
