§ 52. Mr. Hamling
asked the Minister of Transport whether she is aware that the London Transport Board and British Railways charge different fares for the same length of journey in the London area; and whether she will issue general directions to these authorities to discontinue the practice.
§ Mr. Swingler
Details of London Transport and British Rail fares, within the limits authorised by the Transport Tribunal, are a matter for the Boards concerned, not for Ministerial direction. I understand that most fares are the same for journeys of the same length.
