72. Captain TUDOR-REES
asked the Minister of Transport what is the exact connection between his Ministry and the 1732 railway companies; and whether any control is exercised by him over the railways?
§ Sir E. GEDDES
My powers of control over the railways are contained in the Ministry of Transport Act, 1919, to which I would refer the hon. and gallant Member.
§ Mr. BILLING
If the right hon. Gentleman has no control over the railways, why should he take credit for all the improvements?
