HC Deb 20 November 1940 vol 365 cc2019-20W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is the practice of the railways to give precedence to Government officials and Members of Parliament when allocating sleeper accommodation; and whether he is now able to revert to the former practice of guaranteeing accommodation to members travelling to and from their constituencies?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. The practice of guaranteeing sleeping berths to Members travelling to and from their constituencies before and after sittings of the House has been restored for many months.
