§ Sir R. Glyn
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is now in a position to make a statement in regard to the terms arranged between the Government and the British railway companies for compensation for the taking over of the railways by the Ministry of Transport for the period of the war?
§ Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Minister of Transport whether he anticipates much further delay in fixing the terms on which the railway companies are to be remunerated; and whether he can indicate the chief difficulties which have prevented earlier settlement of the question?
§ Captain Wallace
As I indicated last week, negotiations with the railway companies are progressing. Meanwhile I am not in a position to make any statement as to the terms under discussion.
