HC Deb 28 June 1939 vol 349 cc434-5W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered the representations made to him with regard to the seriousness of the increase of fares in the London area by the London Passenger Transport Board; whether he is aware that in some cases the increase is 25 per cent.; and whether he has decided to express any official views to the Board in favour of a revision of certain specially onerous increased fares?

Captain Wallace

I am now engaged in examining the points put to me by a recent deputation, to whom I promised a considered reply. The alterations in fares entail increases of varying amounts, but, as I have explained in previous answers, I have no power to intervene.
