§ Mr. Kitson
asked the Secretary of State for Defence how many travel warrants were issued at Catterick Camp and Richmond to service personnel for rail travel in 1964, 1965 and 1966.
§ Mr. Boyden
Owing to unit moves and the fact that details of warrants issued are not retained beyond twelve months, it is not possible to provide this information from service records. It has, however, been ascertained from British Rail that tickets issued in exchange for railway warrants at Catterick Bridge and Richmond stations to personnel and entitled dependants of the Army and Royal Air Force were as follows:
Catterick Bridge Richmond Total 1964 1,766 25,214 26,980 1965 2,763 21,917 24,680 1966 3,349 21,347 24,696
