§ Mr. BARNES
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consider publishing a White Paper setting out the terms of his settlement with the companies represented by Lord Ashfield, and also the terms of the agreement with the main line railway companies with reference to the London Passenger Transport Bill?
§ Mr. HERBERT MORRISON
The basis of transfer of their undertakings to the proposed London Passenger Transport Board accepted by the underground group of companies has been embodied in Amendments to the Bill which have been laid before the Joint Committee. The heads of agreement with the main line companies have also been printed and circulated to that committee. Both matters are thus before the committee.
