HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c327W
122. Mr. H. D. Hughes

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in order to conserve dollar expenditure on petrol, he will consider granting an extra allocation of coal to the railways on the condition that they run special trains in connection with football matches and similar events, and thereby reduce the demand for long-distance motor-coach excursions.

Mr. Barnes

This matter is under consideration.
