asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the existing circumstances of railway travel, he will make representations to the railway executive as to the desirability of following the example set on some railway-systems by the abolition of any distinction with respect to the class of seat?
I referred to certain aspects of this question in replies to Questions by my hon. Friend the Member for East Wolverhampon (Mr. Mander) on 11th July and by my hon. Friend the Member for Holland with Boston (Mr. Butcher) on 12th June. This is a matter which the Railway Executive Committee assure me is subject to periodic consideration.
Would it be unreasonable to ask the Railway Executive, in view of the considerable inconvenience to third-class passengers, that first-class passengers should be prepared to give up some of their privileges?
