HC Deb 30 May 1934 vol 290 cc172-3W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that railway companies are putting pressure on recognised travel agencies to restrict or prevent the sale of the tickets available by small un-subsidised air passenger-carrying companies; and whether he will make representations to put an end to this practice?


I am aware that under the conditions of their appointment railway ticket agents are precluded from selling tickets for air services without the consent of the railway companies, and that such consent has been refused in the case of certain air services operated in competition with services provided by the railway companies. I see no reason to intervene in the matter.
