§ Sir F FLANNERY
asked the Minister of Transport the gross receipts during the year 1919 of all hotels in the United Kingdom owned by railway companies; and what are the nett profits arising from hotel trading by railway companies?
§ Mr. NEAL
Certain hotels are leased and do not fall within the Railway Agreements. No figures are available in respect of them, and it will, I think, in any case be more convenient if I give the hon. Member the figures relating to the hotels, refreshment rooms and dining cars worked by controlled railway companies. The gross receipts amounted in 1919 to about £6,210,000, and the nett receipts to about £770,000.
