§ Major GLYN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the normal gauge railway between Baiji and Mosul has yet been completed; and, if not, whether everything possible will at once be done to hasten the construction of this railway in order that the road traffic may be reduced and the large number of men now employed in driving lorries and cars upon this route become consequently eligible for demobilisation in the autumn?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Arrangements are in hand for the construction of a narrow-gauge railway between Baiji and Mosul at an early date. It is not proposed to extend the standard gauge line from Baiji to Mosul.
