§ Mr. Peter Thorneycroft
(by Private Notice) asked the Minister of Transport whether he has any statement to make on railway freights and fares before the House adjourns for the Easter Recess.
§ The Minister of Transport (Mr. Barnes)
I may be in a position to make a statement tomorrow morning, but I cannot give a definite undertaking to do this.
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
In view of the real urgency and importance of a decision on this vital matter, will the right hon. Gentleman give an undertaking to make a very special effort to inform the House before we go away for the Easter Recess?
