HC Deb 21 February 1921 vol 138 cc530-1

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the uneasiness felt in East Yorkshire by the threatened termination of competition between the railway systems in that region; and whether he will in the coming Bill ensure that no district hitherto provided with adequate facilities suffers in future in this respect?


I am aware that various localities entertain some anxiety as to the effect upon their districts of the proposals for grouping the railway companies. I hope in the discussion which will arise on the Bill to be introduced to be able to show that these fears are not well founded. I am in close consultation with traders on the subject.
