MR. NEWDIGATE (Warwickshire, Nuneaton)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether it is within his knowledge that, in spite of the Railway Companies' statement that they were revising their rates so that the increase should in no case exceed 5 per cent., the rates on bricks sent out from the Nuneaton district show an average increase of 12½ per cent.; and whether 1024 he will make any representation to the Railway Company on the subject?
§ MR. MUNDELLA
I have received no complaint. But I have communicated the hon. Member's question to the Railway Association, but have not had time for a reply.
