HC Deb 30 January 1941 vol 368 c698W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Minister of Transport whether he has in hand any scheme to overcome the difficulties caused by the shortage of empty wagons for coal transport?

Lieut.-Colonel Moore-Brabazon

Any shortage of wagons is mainly due to a slowing down in circulation. There are a number of reasons for this, and no one remedy; but the most effective improvement is to be secured by a speedier turn round of wagons so as to obtain the fullest possible use of available resources. To secure this is my constant endeavour.
