§ MR. COOPER (Southwark, Bermondsey)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what are the fates per ton charged by the railway companies 91 for the carriage of meat from Glasgow, Aberdeen, Birkenhead, Manchester, Chester, Birmingham, and Norwich to the London Central Meat Market; and whether any reduction in rate is allowed by the railway companies to firms sending chilled and frozen meat from any of these towns which has been imported from America.
§ MR. KEARLEY
The Board of Trade have asked the railway companies concerned for this information and will communicate with my hon. friend when they have received it.
