HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 c1611
40. Mr. ATKEY

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that on the 16th July Sturmey-Archer Gears, Limited, Nottingham, handed to the Great Northern Railway Company a case of goods for Dundee; that this case was returned a few days later, as they were unable to take the traffic; that after repeated communications they were prevailed upon to accept the same again on the 25th July, and since then it has again been returned to the senders, the company stating that they could not forward traffic to Dundee; whether the traffic from Nottingham to Dundee has been allocated to the Great Northern Railway Company; and, if so, in view of their inability to handle the traffic, will he cause another railway company to be selected who can deliver the goods?


I was not aware of the circumstances referred to, but am making inquiries.
