HC Deb 11 August 1920 vol 133 cc430-1W

asked the Minister of Transport what is the amount of rolling stock that is run for first-class passengers and the proportion of revenue derived from the same?


It is not possible to give particulars of the amount of rolling stock run for first-class passengers, as the accommodation is largely provided in composite vehicles. The first-class seating accommodation on the 31st December, 1919, represented 12.45 per cent. of the total, while the revenue from first-class passengers amounted to 14.68 per cent. of the total receipts from all passengers carried in the year ended 31st December, 1919.
