HC Deb 09 July 1924 vol 175 cc2282-3W

asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that preferential treatment by the railway companies in the carrying of goods and produce still continues; and if he can state the cost of bacon freightage from Denmark to London by sea and rail as compared with the cost of carrying one-sixth of the distance on British railways?


As regards the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Plaistow (Mr. W. Thorne) on the 26th May, copy of which I am sending him. With respect to the second part, I have no particulars of the freights charged for carriage of goods by sea.
