§ 31. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether he is aware of the need 960 to reduce transport charges to the minimum after the war, to put it on an efficient national basis, speed up deliveries and cut out all unnecessary overhead charges; and what action has been taken to these ends?
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
My Noble Friend has under active examination the complex problems of post-war transport. As he has said in another place, his objective is a transport system so co-ordinated and run that it can provide and does provide the best possible service for the least real cost to the community as a whole.
§ Sir Herbert Williams
Can the hon. Gentleman give us an assurance that no avenue will be left unstoned?
