§ 55. Mr. FREDERICK WHYTE
asked the right hon. Gentleman whether potato merchants in the counties of Perth, Fife, and Forfar have a grievance against the Caledonian Railway Company in the matter of the shortage of waggons for the conveyance of potatoes; whether he is aware that, unless a reasonable supply of waggons is furnished without delay, such merchants will suffer considerable financial loss within the next few weeks; and whether the recent representations made to the company have produced any effect?
My attention has been called to this matter, and I have communicated with the railway company, but have not yet received a definite reply. I will inform my hon. Friend as soon as I do so.
