HC Deb 08 November 1939 vol 353 cc247-8W
Flight-Lieutenant Grant-Ferris

asked the Minister of Transport whether he can now arrange for some form of cheap-day tickets on the railways in order to enable parents of evacuated children to visit them?

Captain Wallace

The whole question of issuing special cheap day tickets, where these are not already in existence, to enable parents to visit their children in the reception areas is under active examination, in consultation with my right hon. Friends the Secretary of State for Scotland, the Minister of Health and the President of the Board of Education, and I hope it may be possible to make an announcement very shortly.
