§ 30. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is still continuing the C and D rates for goods traffic; and whether he proposes to make any modifications?
§ 32. Sir CYRIL COBB
asked whether he has made any arrangements for putting goods traffic rates upon an economic basis?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
No general revision of goods rates has been or can be made until the Rates Advisory Committee, to be set up under -Section 21 of the Ministry of Transport Act, is appointed. I hope that the last of these appointments will be made in the next few days, and the Committee will be asked, as their first task, to advise upon a scheme for an immediate increase of freight rates.
