HC Deb 25 March 1920 vol 127 c630W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware of the apparently unfair discrimination of the railway companies against the cyclist, as shown by the fact that the charges for transporting a cycle accompanied by its owner has been twice increased since March, 1919, and now stands at an increase of 100 per cent., whereas the charge for other goods has only gone up 50 or 60 per cent.; and whether he can promise to go into the matter with a view to rectifying it?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to a similar question put by the hon. Member for Middlesbrough West (Mr. T. Thomson) on the 15th March. A deputation from the National Cyclists' Union was received on the 23rd March, and they were told that although no immediate alteration could be made their case would receive consideration in the forthcoming general revision of rates.
