§ Mr. LONGBOTTOM
asked the Minister of Transport if Dutch potatoes used in the manufacture of potato crisps, when conveyed from British ports to manufacturers' places by railway, are being carried at the preferential railway rates prescribed in the Local Government Act, 1928?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I assume that the hon. Member's question refers to the rebates from carriage charges to be allowed by railway companies under the Local Government Act, 1929. Such rebates are allowable on all potatoes conveyed by rail except new potatoes.
