HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 cc91-2W
103. Mr. A. Edward Davies

asked the Minister of Transport whether his attention has been drawn to the delay and cost which is being incurred at Liverpool and Birkenhead Docks in discharging and turning round road haulage vehicles particularly those with traffic for the Australian and New Zealand boats; what is the cause of the congestion; and what action is being taken to effect early improvement.

Mr. Barnes

Yes. A working party has been set up in the port to investigate the causes of the congestion and to make recommendations for its reduction. The working party has not yet completed its investigations.
