HC Deb 10 August 1920 vol 133 c246W

asked the Minister of Transport the quantity of rolling stock still remaining overseas; if any of. the stock in France was sold to that country; and what is the comparison between our pre-War rolling stock and our present?

The second part of the question should be addressed to the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions.
