HC Deb 22 March 1920 vol 127 cc66-7W

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is intended to terminate the present arrangement by which traders' tickets are available by alternative lines; and, if so, whether he will reconsider this intention, in view of the great saving of time afforded by this arrangement and the increasing calls upon traders to attend departmental meetings and conferences in London?


The special arrangement which was made owing to the reduction of train services during the War, whereby traders' and other tickets between places served by more than one railway were made available by alternative lines, is being reviewed, and I am unable to give a definite answer at present.
