24. Mr. GORDON HARVEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has succeeded in arranging with the railway companies for the issue during the summer months of cheap tickets to holiday resorts for boys' clubs and similar bodies?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)
Cheap tickets are now being issued in the normal way to societies or institutions who, undertake to arrange holidays for poor children under fourteen years of age. The use of these tickets is available for members of boys' clubs or other similar organisations. I may add that youths over fourteen years of age who belong to any of the cadet corps (about 130 in number) which are approved by the War Office obtain the benefit of the cheap railway facilities granted to those bodies.
§ Mr. WHITEHOUSE
Will boys' clubs and boys' camps have this year, under the terms of the reply just given, the same facilities that they enjoyed in former years?
