asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware that the Southern Railway have given instructions that change must not be given by booking clerks to persons who tender a £5 note in payment of fares; and whether this refusal of the company to accept legal tender is the result of instructions given by his Department?
I am looking into this matter, and will let my hon. Friend know the result.
If I let the hon. Member have details of the case of a squadron-leader who was unable to get a ticket for his wife and child because he had not less than a £5 note in his possession, will he look into them.
I shall be glad to look into any details that the hon. Member can give me.
