asked the Minister of War Transport whether he will now reply to the recent request of the hon. Member for Stretford for a revival of cheap day travel facilities.

There are a number of difficult questions involved, such as the effect on passenger traffic, and I am considering the matter.

While the Minister may not be able to restore the whole of these facilities, will he consider whether the time has not come when cheap day tickets might be issued to recognised parties, such as football teams and organised outings from time to time?

I am afraid that at the present moment one must balance advantage against disadvantage in this matter.

Can the right hon. Gentleman give some indication to when these facilities may be provided?
