§ Captain R. TERRELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the lack of railway wagons is causing very serious loss to agriculturists and waste of agricultural produce, and that there are very considerable complaints of the management of goods rolling stock on the railways; and whether he will take steps to see if the cause of these complaints can at once be at least lessened and as soon as possible removed?
§ Sir A. GEDDES
I am fully aware of the shortage of railway wagons in this country and of complaints arising out of the shortage, which are not confined to agriculturists. Such steps as are possible in the difficult situation in which the railway companies are placed are being taken.
