§ 45. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Prime Minister whether the Government propose to set up a Committee in order to control all forms of inland transport, excluding railways; and, if so, if he can state when this Committee will be appointed, and the names of members, and what forms of transport they are to deal with, and if they will include canals, tramways, and all kinds of motor traffic?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Albert Stanley)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. It is not proposed to set up a 1554 Committee to control all forms of inland transport, excluding railways, but it is proposed to set up a body forthwith to co-ordinate the work of the existing Government Departments in connection with road transport. It will not include canals and tramways, but will generally include other kinds of road traffic. The. terms of reference and the names of the members will be published shortly.
