HC Deb 03 March 1920 vol 126 c459W

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been called to the announcement that on and from 1st March railway companies will not accept for conveyance by passenger trains plants in pots unless they are packed in crates or wooden boxes admitting of other packages being placed on top of them; and if, having regard to the hardship and inconvenience this will inflict upon a large industry, he will take steps to have the proposed restrictions removed?


I understand that a meeting is being held on Thursday between representatives of the interested parties and the railway companies to discuss this matter, and that, meantime, the operation of the proposed new Regulation has been deferred.
