HC Deb 06 June 1921 vol 142 cc1532-3W
Lieut. - Colonel WHITE

asked the Minister of Transport if he will restore the pre-War period of six months for return tickets over 300 miles, in view of the convenience to the public, the saving of labour in issuing return tickets as against two single tickets, and the probable gain to the revenue of the railways?


The alteration in the period of availability of return tickets was made by the companies in September, 1918. It was within their commercial discretion generally to do so before the War and will be after control comes to an end, and I do not propose to exercise any powers I may have in this matter between now and the 15th August.
