HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 cc762-3W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps have now been taken to secure the pooling of railway wagons in Scotland, including private traders' wagons, in order to provide for the earlier dispatch and delivery of coal from the pit head?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. The wagons belonging to the principal Scottish railway companies are already pooled, and the question whether the arrangement can be extended to private traders' wagons is receiving careful consideration.
