HC Deb 10 March 1925 vol 181 c1153W

asked the Minister of Transport whether, having regard to the provisions of the Railways Act, 1921, he can state the total amount of debenture and share capital issued by each of the tour railway companies; and the total market value at the present time?

Colonel ASHLEY

The hon. Member will find the amount of issued debenture and share capital of each of the four amalgamated railways in the Annual Railway Return for 1923. The figures contained in the annual accounts of the companies for the year 1924 have not yet been tabulated. I will send these to the hon. Member shortly and he will then be in a position to make a calculation.
