§ MR. F. A. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade when the evidence of the Departmental Committee on Light Railways will be issued?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. J. BRYCE,) Aberdeen, S.
The Committee to which my hon. Friend refers was not a Departmental Committee, but was appointed by the conference convened to consider the subject of Light Railways. After consultation, with my hon. Friend the Member for Banbury, the Chairman of the Committee, I have come to the conclusion that I should hardly be justified in putting the country to the expense of printing and circulating the evidence, which is voluminous.
§ MR. CHANNING
May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman will consider the advisability of publishing the important documents with respect to light railways in other countries as separate documents?
