HC Deb 07 August 1941 vol 373 c2138W
Mr. Brooke

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that numbers of people who come to London for pleasure with cheap day return tickets make the return journey during the hours when traffic is at its peak, thus adding to the travelling difficulties of those who are returning to their home after a hard day's work; and whether he will arrange that these tickets shall not be available on the London suburban services for the return journey during the hours of peak traffic in the coming autumn and winter months?

Colonel Llewellin

Yes, Sir, it is proposed that from 1st October next to 31st March, 1942, cheap day return tickets to London shall not be available for the return journey between 4.30 p.m. and 6.30 p.m. on Mondays to Fridays inclusive.
