§ 2. Mr. LOUGH
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the Midland and Great Northern Railways Joint Committees are refusing transit facilities for potatoes at Holbeach, Lincolnshire, consigned to Kew Bridge Station, London; and whether, having regard to the prices obtaining for this article of food as for many others, partly the result of railway obstructions and delays in transit, he will cause unnecessary obstructions to be removed immediately?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD Of TRADE (Mr. G. Roberts)
I am not aware of the circumstances to which the right hon. Gentleman refers, but I will make inquiries and let him know the result.
