§ Captain Poole
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he is aware that the London Midland and Scottish Railway Company are declining claims arising out of excessive delay in transit, pleading that such delays are due to enemy action, when, in fact, no such enemy action has taken place; and what steps he proposes to take to compel the railway company to give fair treatment to private traders who are suffering severe financial loss in consequence of this action?
§ Colonel Llewellin
I am having inquiries made and will communiciate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as possible.
