§ 79. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Minister of Transport if he will state approximately to what extent the road transport systems of the country are now controlled by the railway systems?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The proportion of the passenger road transport undertakings of the country actually controlled by railway companies, is, I believe, small. At the same time I understand that the railway companies have acquired financial interests in a large number of such undertakings. As regards goods services by road, apart from their collection and delivery services, the railway companies have, so far as I am aware, as yet acquired no considerable interests.
§ Mr. ALBERY
Can the Minister give an approximate idea of the amount of road transport in which railway companies are interested?
