Mr. T. THOMSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that many British rail makers will shortly not have enough work to keep their mills running at their full capacity; and if he can do anything to facilitate the placing of orders by home railways, as these orders are apparently being withheld for some reason?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I understand that British rail makers are very busy at present, but I am drawing the attention of the Railway Executive Committee to the hon. Gentleman's point.
