§ Sir S. SCOTT
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the announcement in the A.B.C. railway time-tables for July that return tickets for six months are now only valid for two months; and whether he can state the reasons for this alteration?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
The alteration in the period for which return tickets are available was made in September last year. The shorter period is more convenient to the railway companies for checking abuses of the privilege.
