HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 c1679W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Minister of War Transport if he is aware that the L.N.E.R. have been refusing traffic for stations south of Doncaster from Edinburgh for, in some cases, upwards of three weeks; and if he has any proposals to make for facilitating the endeavours of Scottish manufacturers to supply the Home Counties of the South with their marchandise.

Mr. Barnes

I regretthat owing to congestion caused by fog and heavy traffic, it was necessary for the London and North Eastern Railway Company to impose restrictions on the acceptance of traffic for conveyance to destinations south of Doncaster. This restriction was removed on 3rd December.
