§ Mr. Parkinson
asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been called to the delay in, and the sufferings caused to, two consignments of pigs from Thuxston, Norfolk, to Crowthorne, Berks, a journey of less than 150 miles, which took approximately 48 hours; and whether he will consult with the London and North Eastern Railway Company with a view to the transport of livestock receiving more expeditious and humane treatment?
§ Mr. Burgin
I have received representations in connection with the consignments referred to and am in communication with the Railway Companies concerned. I will let the hon. Member know the result.
