§ Major GLYN
asked the Minister of Transport the principles which guide his Department in determining in the national interest for which classes of traffic transport by road, rail, or canal can best be utilised?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
I have no power to determine for which classes of traffic transport by road, rail or canal can best be utilised. As the hon. and gallant Member is aware, the Royal Commission on Transport referred to this matter in paragraph 500 of their final report, and also made a number of recommendations with a view to securing the employment of the available means of transport to the greatest public advantage. These recommendations are now under consideration.
