HC Deb 29 June 1909 vol 7 cc218-9

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the contents of Command Paper 4,695, which gives the heads of agreements between the London and North-Western and Midland Railway Companies and between the London and North-Western, Midland, and Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Companies; and whether, in view of the statement on behalf of the companies concerned that they were agreeable to the publication of the terms of the agreements, he will take steps to have the respective agreements presented in full?


I understand that in neither of the cases named has any formal agreement been made beyond the heads of agreement, which have already been published. If and when a formal agreement is signed by the three companies I will see whether anything can be done with a view to its publication.
