HC Deb 04 December 1950 vol 482 c20
41. Mr. McAdden

asked the Minister of Transport whether the transfer to rail from road of the container loads referred to in sub-paragraph (i) of paragraph 26, on page 21, of the Second Annual Report of the Transport Commission was effected with or without the consent of the customer concerned.

Mr. Barnes

This is a matter of day-to-day administration for the British Transport Commission.

Mr. McAdden

The next time that the Minister of Transport answers Questions would it be possible for us to have a gramophone record?

Mr. Manuel

May I ask the Minister not to rate too highly the synthetic indignation of the Opposition on these questions? Is he aware that all they are asking in connection with film expenditure or anything else is for more controls, which they tell the country they want to remove?

Mr. Braine

Has not the Minister made it quite clear, in reply to this and previous Questions, that the idea of nationalisation conferring public control over industry is a myth and a delusion? There is no public control whatsoever.
