HC Deb 20 November 1946 vol 430 cc116-7W
87. Mr. McAdam

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he is aware that one of the difficulties in restoring the economic and social life of Germany is the disorganised condition of the German railways; what steps are being taken to restore the railways to a state of efficiency; and by whom.

Mr. J. Hynd

No, Sir. The German railways are no longer disorganised but are working efficiently with the limited rolling stock at their disposal. The problem is now one of increasing that rolling stock, particularly locomotives and freight trucks, and this is receiving the constant attention of the Control Commission.
