HC Deb 26 April 1920 vol 128 c882W
Major NALL

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he is aware of the great delay in the transit of eggs from Ireland to Manchester, which in many cases amounts to 10 days: and whether the fault lies with the English or the Irish railways?


Some complaints of delay have recently been received. The difficulty appeared to be due to inadequate shipping space and not to any fault of the English or Irish railways. It is proposed that a conference of the cross channel steamship owners, including. certain English railway companies, should be held to consider the best means of overcoming the difficulty.
