HC Deb 10 July 1941 vol 373 c332W
Mr. Messer

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that mechanics and artisans working on shift duties are able to obtain workmen's tickets after the normal time for the issue of such tickets but that hospital workers are unable to obtain this privilege; and can he take steps to secure this advantage for men and women employed at hospitals?

Colonel Llewellin

To require workmen's tickets to be issued outside the normal hours to persons other than artisans, mechanics and labourers would make these tickets available to large numbers of persons for whom they were never intended and it would then be difficult, to justify the continuance of the low fares which now apply.
