HC Deb 11 December 1941 vol 376 c1714W
Mr. Glenvil Hall

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport, whether he is aware that at least one railway company has refused to allow relatives, using the cheap fare facilities to visit their evacuated children, to travel by the best available train; and whether this is in accord with the policy of his Ministry?

Colonel Llewellin

The cheap fares are available for travel on all trains except the Cornish Riviera Express. Pressure on that service to and from the West of England is very heavy, and I do not consider this restriction unreasonable.
