HC Deb 01 July 1920 vol 131 c689W

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?


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.
