HC Deb 05 March 1940 vol 358 c224W
Mr. Poole

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that members of the Forces are charged 2d.for a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa in railway refreshment rooms, he will take steps, in collaboration with the railway companies, to secure that these men may be able to get such refreshments at reduced prices when travelling?

Captain Wallace

I am satisfied that the charge of 2d. made to members of the Forces, as compared with a charge of 3d. made to civilians, is reasonable and I am not prepared to press the companies to make any further reduction.
