HC Deb 07 July 1926 vol 197 cc2080-1W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in connection with the revision of railway rates for the conveyance of livestock, any steps are being taken to defend the agricultural interests affected; and, if so, whether he will state their nature?

Colonel W. ASHLEY

I have been asked to reply to this question, and would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to him on the 26th April last, in answer to a similar question. I understand that the Livestock Traders' Association of Great Britain and the National Farmers' Union are appearing before the Railway Rates Tribunal in connection with the matter.
