§ Mr. FORREST
asked the Minister of Transport if, in view of the feeling amongst farmers on the subject, he will consider the advisability of abolishing the present system of compulsory prepayment on carriage of live stock?
§ Mr. NEAL
So far as I am aware, there is no general system of compulsory 673W pre-payment of carriage charges on live stock sent by freight train. If the hon. Member refers to carriage by passenger train, pre-payment is the rule in respect of all traffic. I am informed that very little live stock is so forwarded by the farmers. I shall be glad, however, to look into any particular case which the hon. Member has in mind.
