HC Deb 29 March 1920 vol 127 cc858-9

asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the congestion in the Hull docks, he will consider the advisability of instructing the Great Central Railway Company to assist and co-operate with the Hull and Barnsley Railway Company and the North Eastern Railway Company until this congestion is relieved?


The Great Central Railway, no less than the other railway companies, are co-operating with the North Eastern and the Hull and Barnsley Railway for the purpose of relieving the position at Hull, and I am glad to say that, as a result of special steps which have been taken, the wagon situation at that port has shown considerable improvement.
