HC Deb 01 July 1920 vol 131 cc685-6W

asked the Minister of Transport whether the cancellation of the agreement with the Metropolitan District Railway Company depends upon the passing by the House of the London Electric Railways Bill; what will happen if the Bill is not passed in exactly the present form; and whether this understanding on the subject is in any way connected with the fares on omnibuses.


As regards the first and second parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to what the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Transport said during the Debate on the Estimates on Thursday last. The fares on omnibuses are entirely in the discretion of the omnibus company.
