§ 49. Mr. John Arbuthnot
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that Kentish agricultural produce was allowed to rot in trucks at Blackfriars Station on Good Friday while Gravel Lane Station, which handles foreign produce, was open and delivering; and whether he will make representations to the British Transport Commission to ensure that home-produced fruit and vegetables should, in future, receive treatment as expeditious as that given to foreign produce.
Mr. T. Williams
I have asked the British Transport Commission to investigate the matter referred to by the hon. Member and will advise him of the outcome as soon as possible.
