HC Deb 14 December 1922 vol 159 cc3181-2W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport if he is aware that workmen's railway fares on the Clydeside are in some cases nearly 200 per cent, above the pre-War level; that there is no proposal to reduce them below the present high level; and whether he will use his influence with the railway companies to make some concession to this section of travellers?

Lieut.-Colonel ASHLEY

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on the 5th instant to the hon. Member for Renfrew, Eastern Division (Mr. Nichol), of which I am sending him a copy.
