With your permission, Mr. Speaker, and that of the House, I will make a statement about a late night transport service for the House of Commons staff. Arrangements have been made for the Ministry of Supply to operate, as from this week, a small number of six seater vehicles to convey staff to points near their homes along four main routes when the House rises after midnight. It is impossible to include Members of Parliament in this scheme. The fares charged will be the same as before. The estimated cost is about £500 in a full year, a small proportion of which will be recovered from receipts.
