HC Deb 16 March 1936 vol 310 c52W

asked the Minister of Transport what action he is taking to promote the amalgamation, unification, and rationalisation of the canal systems of this country, as recommended by the Royal Commission and Departmental Committee; and what progress has recently been made?


The Transport Advisory Council is about to undertake an investigation into the means of coordinating transport, and the first stage in their inquiry concerns service and rates in relation to all forms of transport, including canals.
