asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether his attention has been called to the statement that the railway companies have under consideration the question of the reintroduction of cheap facilities for officers and ratings of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines; and can he now say what reply the Admiralty have received to their representations to the railway companies in this matter?

In December last the railway companies were requested by the Army Council on behalf of the three Departments concerned to consider favourably the question of the reintroduction of cheap travelling facilities for officers and men of the Navy, Army, and Air Force. A reply has now been received from the railway clearing house to the effect that after careful consideration of the whole matter the railway companies regret that they cannot see their way to accede to this request.
