HC Deb 31 July 1963 vol 682 cc81-2W
47. Mr. Manuel

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the large number of workpeople who now work a five-day week, he will give a general direction, in the public interest, to the Railways Board to issue a five-day weekly ticket with a consequent reduction in fare.

Mr. Galbraith

No. This is a matter for the commercial judgment of the British Railways Board.
