HC Deb 06 June 1928 vol 218 c176W

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware than the existing goods service for the fruit growers of the Wisbech district places them at a disadvantage compared with other districts served by other railways, which have a one-day goods service to the North and to Scotland, and with Dutch and foreign importers; and whether any steps can be taken to improve the service for agricultural produce in this district?

Colonel ASHLEY

I brought this matter to the notice of the railway company, and I understand that, as a result of negotiations which they have had with the Fruit Growers' Association at Wisbech, arrangements that are satisfactory to the association have now been made.
