§ 102. Mr. HAYDAY
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether, in view of the scarcity of wagons, he could state how many wagons were on order from manufacturers; and whether he was aware that wagon manufacturing works were working short time?
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Have the Government any intention of building wagons in their own Departments such as the Arsenal, and in other parts of the country, so as to speed up the provision of wagons?
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that nearly all the manufacturers are at present short of orders?
Is not the practical way to see that the railway companies place orders, so that the shortage maybe overcome?
