§ 11. Mr. ROBERT RICHARDSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the annual cost of salaries and allowances of all kinds paid to the Government officials concerned in the control of the railways during the War.
§ Mr. NEAL
I have been asked to reply to this question. The working of the railways of which possession was taken on the outbreak of War was controlled by a Committee of General Managers known as the Railway Executive Committee, who acted on behalf of the Board of Trade, which had no staff for the purpose.
