HC Deb 03 June 1946 vol 423 c262W
100. Brigadier Low

asked the Minister of Transport what immediate proposals he has in mind to relieve the hardship which he is causing to ex-Servicemen who ran small haulage contractors businesses before the war and wish to restart their businesses again, by failing to define which sections of road transport he proposes to bring under public ownership in forthcoming legislation.

Mr. Barnes

I am not aware that there is any hardship such as the hon. and gallant Member suggests and in any case I cannot at present add to the answer I gave to the hon. Member on the 27th May in reply to a similar question.
