77. Mr. McKie
asked the Minister of War Transport if he will make a statement as to the probable date when the first of the new rolling stock, now under construction by the L.M.S., will come into service.
§ Mr. Barnes
I presume that the hon. Member refers to new passenger carriages; 219 are already in service, and additional units are coming into use each week
May I ask the Minister whether, in view of the fact that the L.M.S. Railway new rolling stock has been subject to much advertisement by the Press, he will see that these carriages are forthcoming at the earliest possible moment?
