HC Deb 07 June 1917 vol 94 cc367-8W

asked the hon. Member for Worcestershire (Bewdley Division) if he will consult the chairman of the Road Board as to -whether he is in favour of a full and careful inquiry into every aspect of the New Transport Company's scheme for handling goods at railway termini and relieving the traffic on the streets; and, if so, whether he will order such an inquiry to be undertaken at once with a view to obtaining an authoritative decision on this question before the termination of the War?


No, Sir. This matter does not appear to be within the province of the Treasury.
