Reduced Fare Tickets

Volume 447: debated on Tuesday 20 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what his policy is towards train operators who intend to limit the use of (a) cheap day and (b) other reduced fare tickets between 1630 and 1900 to and from London; and if he will make a statement. (77468)

Off-peak fares are unregulated, which means operators are free to create fares, withdraw fares, set prices and any time restrictions on a commercial basis, to fill spare off-peak capacity.
