HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 c717W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the difficulties now being experienced by the Skipton Rock Company owing to the short supply of railway wagons; and whether, seeing that they have only had four or six wagons doled out to them on several days lately, the minimum necessary for the requirements of their business being twenty, he will cause the necessary steps to be taken to ensure an adequate supply of wagons in future?


Inquiry is being made of the railway company concerned regarding the case quoted by the hon. and gallant Member, and every effort will be made to supply to the Skipton Rock Company an adequate proportion of the wagons available.
