asked the Minister of Transport, why cheap travel facilities are denied to parents wishing to visit evacuated children at week-ends in places served by the Great Western Railway; whether this is in accordance with the practice of other railway companies; and whether he will consider bringing the system into conformity to allow of cheap travel facilities on all lines at week-ends, and not only on certain week-days.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon
As I announced on 5th December in reply to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for North East Bethnal Green (Mr. Chater), the restrictions on the Great Western Railway Company's system have been removed. The facilities have been available since that date on all railway systems on any day of the week, and a large number of parents are taking advantage of them.204W
