HC Deb 12 November 1936 vol 317 c1063W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider the issue of season tickets to hon. Members in cases where it would save the revenue?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

Proposals for the issue of season tickets instead of the present travelling vouchers have been considered on several occasions. The use of season tickets might be more economical in particular eases, but it would be impracticable to confine the arrangement to periods during which a saving might be expected to result. A general issue of season tickets would undoubtedly entail a heavy increase in the total cost of free travelling facilities, and I do not think that this could be justified.
