§ 12. Mr. D. Griffiths
asked the Minister of Transport if he will give a general direction to the British Transport Commission for adult fares not to be charged to school children until they have attained the age of 15 years.
§ Mr. Hay
No. This is a matter for the commercial judgment of the British Transport Commission. The Commission's Passenger Charges Scheme, however, contains provisions enabling reduced fares to be charged for young people between 14 and 18 years of age for travel to and from schools and other educational establishments.
