HC Deb 23 April 1917 vol 92 c2065W
Major HUNT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the railway companies refuse to handle empty baskets, etc; and, if so, whether he will consider the matter in view of the loss which will be caused both to the public and producer?


I am afraid that, in present circumstances, difficulties of this kind cannot altogether be avoided, but if the hon. and gallant Gentleman will furnish me with details of any particular case which he may have in mind I will look into the matter.
