HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 c798W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the demand for an extension of the system of workmen's trains and of the time, so as to permit of their being run up to 8 o'clock a.m. on all lines, with a terminal station within the London area; and whether he can hold out any expectation of a return to the normal pre-war fares at an early date?


Trains available for workmen at workmen's fares are, I believe, run in the London area generally up to about 8 a.m., and no increase has been made in the fares. Should the hon. and learned Gentleman have any special cases in mind, I shall be happy to look into them if he will supply me with the necessary particulars.
