HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 c922W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the fact that grain wheat is the only raw material which bears the same rate for carriage as the manufactured article, he will endeavour to arrange when the new railway rates come into force that a lower charge be made for carrying the raw material, wheat, than the manufactured article, flour?


Many points of classification will have to be considered when the systematic revision of railway rates is undertaken. I will see that a copy of the hon. Member's question is laid before the Rates Advisory Committee.
