HC Deb 03 April 1922 vol 152 cc1870-1W
Major GLYN

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether railway companies have power at the present time to grant exceptional rates without prejudice to such rates affecting the standardisation of rates by the tribunal, which takes effect on the appointed day under the 1920 Act?


The railway companies have and will continue to have such power. For the conditions under which exceptional rates may be granted after the appointed day I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to Sections 36 to 40 of the Railways Act, 1921.
