HC Deb 12 March 1941 vol 369 c1267
20. Mr. David Adams

asked the Minister of Transport whether the appeal to housewives of the country to finish with transport by 4 o'clock in order to leave omnibuses, tramcars and trains free for war workers has proved successful or whether further steps will be required?

Mr. Montague

It is too early yet to judge the full effect of the appeal, but I understand that it has already had a good response.

Mr. Adams

Is the Minister aware that there are bitter complaints by workers in munition factories on Tyneside about the facilities for going to and from their work between five and six?

Mr. Montague

I am not aware of that, but the response may differ in various parts of the country. We have had many reports from our representative to the other effect.
