HC Deb 16 February 1920 vol 125 c533W
Colonel BURN

asked the Minister of Transport if he will reduce the high charges now made in respect of traders' parcels sent by passenger train?


The increases in respect of parcels by passenger train were made in accordance with the advice of the Rates Advisory Committee, and are of an interim character. The Rates Advisory Committee are about to undertake a general inquiry into the basis and classification of railway rates.
