HC Deb 29 April 1948 vol 450 c81W
96. Squadron-Leader Kinghorn

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations what steps have been taken to obtain a quota of the redundant repairable railway wagons in this country so that they may be modified for use on the Rhodesian railway system.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

I am sorry to inform my hon. and gallant Friend that there are no redundant railway wagons in the United Kingdom which could be repaired and exported overseas. All the wagons on our railways which are fit for repair are urgently required in the United Kingdom.
