HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc415-6W
63. Mr. Hornby

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a further statement on go-slow tactics on the Southern Region of British Railways; and whether he will take further initiatives to bring these practices, which have caused inconvenience to commuters, to an end.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Following the recommendations of the Executive Committee of the Associated Society of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen, non-co-operation on the part of the motormen on the Southern Region of British Railways has ceased. In present circumstances, further Government initiative would be inappropriate and unnecessary.
