asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that a large number of season-ticket holders were unable to use their tickets during the continuance of the recent railway strike; and whether he will advise the Railway Executive Committee to extend the validity of such tickets for a corresponding period?

The Metropolitan District Railway Company inform me that under the conditions of the issue of season-tickets they have no liability in this matter, but that, in view of the exceptional circumstances, they have given instructions that in cases where an alternative route was not available renewals of season-tickets are to be extended for a period corresponding to that during which the holders were unable to travel. Similar instructions have been given by the London. Electric Railway Company.
