HC Deb 03 July 1978 vol 953 c82W
Mr. Stainton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what account he has taken in formulating his policy regarding concessionary fares of the need to provide half fare concessions for schoolchildren of all ages on British Railways; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. William Rodgers

My policy on concessionary fares recognises that it is for the Railways Board to decide the extent of its arrangements for offering travel at reduced rates.
