HC Deb 16 October 1940 vol 365 cc714-5W
Mr. Craven-Ellis

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is satisfied that the rest and food arrangements made for the comfort and convenience of serving soldiers at the chief stations on the Southern Railway are adequate; and whether, in this connection, he is aware of the complaints by men in the services of the high prices charged in the restaurant cars?

Mr. Law

I have been asked to reply. The provision of rest and refreshment rooms at most stations used to any large extent by troops has been completed; at others, it is proceeding. When the work is all completed, I do not think there will be any ground for complaint. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for West Lewisham (Mr. Brooke) on 8th October.
