HC Deb 23 January 1918 vol 101 cc1005-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied with all the railway arrangements and administration which obtain at the present time, or whether, considering the new conditions brought about by the stress of war, he is prepared to remodel that side of the railway system that is concerned with the scientific solution of the problem of the most efficient transport?


My right hon. Friend is confident that every effort is being made to provide efficiency of railway transport in circumstances of great difficulty, and he does not propose to attempt to remodel the existing system at the present time.
