HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 c369W
93. Mr Stanbrook

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will take steps to subsidise commuter rail transport in order to avoid anticipated rises in fares.

Mr. Mulley

Commuter fares are already subsidised through Government support to British Railways. I am discussing with the board the distribution of its proposed fare increases between different classes of traffic.
