asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport, whether he is aware that the Western Welsh Omnibus Company and other companies in Monmouthshire and South Wales have stopped issuing three or six months' tickets and only issue monthly ones; whether this is a decision arrived at by the companies themselves or a national order issued by the National Transport Board; and whether, seeing this is an increased cost to persons using these services and also an increase of office work, he will take steps to see that the order is cancelled?

At the instance of the Regional Transport Commissioner for Wales, the issue of three-, six- and twelve-monthly season tickets was suspended from 1st January, 1943, on the services of certain omnibus companies in Monmouthshire and South Wales. As has already been announced in the Press, the Commissioner has found it possible to allow the restoration of these tickets as from 5th April, 1943, subject to a right of withdrawal at seven days' notice if circumstances should render this necessary.
