HC Deb 10 March 1925 vol 181 c1151W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider the question of regrouping the railway systems so as to give the Southern Railway access to the industrial and freight producing midlands, and give the Midland, North Western and North Eastern railways access to the south coast harbours?

Colonel ASHLEY

It is not my intention to introduce legislation with a view to altering the railway grouping that was fixed by the Railways Act of 1921.
