Yes, Sir. The railways have arranged to start this important new scheme on 1st October, but its operation in any particular area will depend upon the delivery of supplies of the new warrants. Orders for these warrants have been given but supplies may not be available in all areas by that date.
While thanking the hon. Gentleman for his reply, can I assume that the new form will be fully equivalent to a railway ticket and that no check will be required at the booking office?
