HC Deb 13 May 1943 vol 389 cc799-800W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he will consider recommending the issue of six-day tickets to regular travellers on omnibuses in order to save labour and paper?

Mr. Noel-Baker

In some areas, where omnibus season tickets and cheap return tickets have been withdrawn in order to discourage non-essential travel, weekly twelve-journey and other multiple-journey tickets have been introduced to meet the needs of regular travellers. Regard is, however, had to the conditions and needs of each area and, I do not think that labour would necessarily be saved, or any substantial paper economy achieved, by the universal adoption of multiple-journey tickets.
