HC Deb 28 January 1931 vol 247 c996W

asked the Minister of Transport approximately to what extent the road transport systems of the country have passed under the control of the railway system?


The proportion of the passenger road transport undertakings of the country actually controlled by railway companies, is, I believe, small. At the same time, I understand that the railway companies have acquired financial interests in a large number of such undertakings. As regards goods services by road, apart from their collection and delivery services, the railway companies have, so far as I am aware, as yet acquired no considerable interests.
