asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether notices could be affixed at London Passenger Transport Board stopping points, at least in the Greater London area, stating frequency of service betwen first and last services; and the times of local departure of the less frequent services?

For services on which there are four omnibuses an hour or less, time-tables are already posted at the principal stopping places. The London Passenger Transport Board are also preparing notices showing the times of the first and last omnibuses on other services. I will send my hon. Friend further details of their proposals.

Will my hon. Friend look into the matter more closely, as frequently intending passengers have to hang about at stopping places not knowing when vehicles are coming? It would facilitate their travel if information notices were affixed to stopping place posts.

We are doing everything possible subject to the limitations of labour and paper.
