HC Deb 16 August 1920 vol 133 c620W
Captain BENN

asked the Minister of Transport whether the railway companies throughout Great Britain have received instructions not to accept goods consigned to Ireland; whether he is aware that great inconvenience and injury are being caused to both countries by this action; and if he will immediately issue orders recalling any Regulations to this effect and give every practical facility to the interchange of traffic?


No Regulations of this kind have been issued by the Minister; but the railway companies themselves have had to place temporary restrictions upon the acceptance of traffic consigned to Ireland in consequence of the transport situation arising out of local conditions in that country.
