HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc952-3W
Lieut.-Colonel BUCKLEY

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that his Department have refused facilities for the immediate conveyance by railway of 4,000 doors and ninety-eight baths, lying at the Government depot at Abbey Mills, and recently bought by the corporation of Liverpool; whether he is aware that these are needed in connection with the conversion of Army huts into workmen's dwellings; and whether, in view of the extreme urgency of the housing problem in Liverpool, he will reconsider the decision of his Department and endeavour to expedite delivery of these articles?
