HC Deb 18 May 1914 vol 62 c1590
101. Mr. C. BATHURST

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the railway companies which carry traffic from the ports to inland towns have raised their rates for foreign traffic as the result of the passing of the Railway Act, 1912, or whether, as when a general rise in rates took place in 1902–3, foreign traffic is being exempted from the burden of the increased charge?


I am not aware that export and import rates in general have been excepted from the increase of last July.
