asked the Minister of Transport the number of tickets of each denomination issued on the L.P.T.B. for any typically average day, at the nearest convenient date, showing road and rail services, separately; and, if possible, indicate to what extent they have varied for a similar day in 1939.
Yes, Sir, I am sending my hon. Friend the information he requires.
asked the Minister of Transport the percentage increases in passenger journeys, average distance travelled and passenger miles run on the L.P.T.B. system in 1946 as compared with 1938–39.
The figures are: 12.6, 17.8, and 32.7, per cent. respectively.
In view of this increase in the mileage, can the Minister explain why he is not able to reduce fares?
I am afraid I cannot deal with that matter in question and answer.
