asked the Minister of War Transport if he will consider having seats reserved on trains on the request of Members travelling to their homes or constituencies on the last sitting day of the week, so as to enable Members to remain later in attendance at the House on that day.

The normal arrangements for reserving seats on trains were abolished at the beginning of the war and reservations are now made only in the most exceptional circumstances. I have considered my hon. Friend's suggestion sympathetically, but have come to the conclusion that I should not be justified in making the arrangements he desires.
