asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether, in view of the extreme and growing difficulty of obtaining playing-fields within the immediate London area, he will press on the railway companies the desirability of issuing the cheapest possible half-day tickets to those who can prove they are attached to any athletic or kindred organisations in the outer suburbs?
