§ Lieut.-Colonel JAMES
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether arrangements have now been made to ensure the outstanding claims of the North British Railway Company against the Government a speedy settlement?
§ Mr. NEAL
I must refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave on 15th February to the hon. and gallant Member for Bournemouth (Lieut.-Colonel Croft), a copy of which I am sending him. Since that date I have met the Chairman and some of the directors and principal shareholders of the North British Railway and fully explained to them the position of the Government, but I have nothing to add to the answer referred to above.
