HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c1921
31. Mr. Macdonald

asked the Minister of Education if he will consult with the authorities concerned, with a view to arranging to raise the half-fare privilege on all public transport for children up to 15 years of age on educational journeys.

Mr. Tomlinson

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. Member for Hastings (Mr. Cooper-Key) on 27th July last.

Mr. Macdonald

I have not seen that reply. Does it extend to school children, not only on educational journeys, but other journeys, provided that they are under the age of 15?

Mr. Tomlinson

I am not concerned with jounrneys other than educational journeys.
