Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now arranged with the Ministry of Munitions regarding the conversion of war factories into factories for the manufacture of rolling stock urgently required in connection with the railways; and, if so, what is the nature of his plans in this respect?
Sir R. WILLIAMS
I must refer the hon. Member to the-answer given by the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions on 27th October, in reply to several questions on this subject. I am reviewing the whole rolling stock position, and will in a week or two's time arrange to give the fullest information possible on the subject, and I hope the hon. Member will kindly concur in postponing the question for a fortnight.
