Mr. DUNDAS WHITE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the desirability of granting railway passes free, or at reduced rates, to men under military training, so as to facilitate their revisiting their homes at Christmas and New Year?
I will consult my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War on the subject, and will inform my hon. Friend of the result in due course.
§ Sir JOHN RANDLES
asked the Under-secretary of State for War whether, in view of the Government control of railways, it will be possible to make further special reductions in the railway fares charged to members of His Majesty's Forces on holiday leave during the Christmas and New Year season, so as to allow men whose homes are at a distance from their camps to visit them at a nominal cost?
§ Mr. TENNANT
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to-day242W to the hon. Member for the Tradeston Division by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade.
