HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 c948W
Captain BOWYER

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that delay is being experienced in collecting and dispatching empty packages on the railways; and whether, in view of the importance to manufacturers of having their empty packages promptly returned to them, he will take steps to see that this delay is remedied?


I am aware that delays occur, but I am assured that the railway companies are alive to the importance of getting empties returned to manufacturers as promptly is possible.
