HC Deb 13 October 1942 vol 383 cc1512-3W
Mr. Isaacs

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he will consider an extension of time for the issue of workmen's tickets in the London transport area until 8.30 a.m. in order to ease the pressure on vehicles arriving at the London termini by 8 a.m. and make a practical step towards avoiding workmen wasting time in getting to their employment?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. Thorne) on 30th June, in which I explained that this proposal had been given careful consideration but that it had not been adopted, because it would be likely to increase the pressure at peak hours and to cause undesirable diversion of traffic.
