HC Deb 24 November 1947 vol 444 c252W
101. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that in places like North Staffordshire much time is lost by the travelling public in waiting in bus queues; and whether he will remedy this by the introduction of comparable and cheaper railway fares over the same area.

Mr. Callaghan

My hon. Friend's proposition raises large issues of principle and fact, and because of that must be left for consideration by the British Transport Commission, who have been charged with responsibility for preparing, as one of their early duties, a draft scheme or draft schemes for determining their charges.
