HC Deb 10 March 1943 vol 387 cc658-9
60. Mr. Ridley

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport the broad outline of the proposals formulated by his Department for the post-war reorganisation of transport; and to whom have they been submitted?

Mr. Noel-Baker

When my Noble Friend has formulated definite proposals for the post-war reorganisation of transport, he will submit them to his colleagues in the Government for their consideration, but that stage has not been reached.

Mr. Ridley

Will they be laid before the House?

Mr. Noel-Baker

Yes, Sir, in due course they will have to be laid before the House.

Captain Strickland

Am I to take it that there is under contemplation the State organisation of transport after the war?

Mr. Noel-Baker

I do not think the hon. and gallant Gentleman should make any assumptions.
