§ 42. Brigadier-General BROOKE
asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the complaints which have been made of the serious delay in handling goods owing to the shortage of trucks on the London and North Eastern Railway; and whether he will be willing to make further inquiries as to the extent of the hindrance to trade complained of?
§ Colonel ASHLEY
I am aware that certain complaints of this kind have been made against the railways, especially after the periods of fog and snow that occurred during the winter. If my hon. and gallant Friend will furnish me with the particulars on which his complaint is based, I will cause inquiries to be made.
