HC Deb 21 February 1933 vol 274 cc1595-6
69. Mr. TOUCHE

asked the Minister of Transport whether any action has been taken to reduce the number of statistical and financial returns required to be made by railway companies, as suggested in the report of the Royal Commission on Transport?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

Yes Sir. As a result of a review by my Department and the railway companies of the financial and statistical information furnished by the companies under various statutory requirements the returns were substantially modified as from 1st January, 1932, with a consequent material reduction in the work previously involved.
