HC Deb 16 June 1947 vol 438 c159W
1. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make arrangements for those who have been engaged in productive industry or essential services to have priority on Saturdays during July and August; that reasonable travelling facilities he arranged when they art going on their annual holidays; if passenger traffic will be regulated or priority tickets given; and, where necessary, if extra trains will be put on to avoid the standing and conditions of the past.

Mr. Barnes

No; such a scheme would be impracticable. The number of trains run this summer will be limited by the necessity to save fuel.
