§ Mr. EDEN
As regards the first and second parts of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the latter part of the reply which was returned to my hon. Friend the Member for Moseley (Sir P. Hannon) on 7th April. I should add, however, that a small section of the present system was constructed by the Bagdad Railway Company before the War. As regards the last part of the question, it is not possible to summarise the financial results of the working of the railway system within the compass of a Parliamentary reply.
