HC Deb 27 June 1949 vol 466 c52W
87. Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Minister of Food what are the comparative costs for road and rail transport of fat stock from Carlisle to a representative Lancashire town; and what are the losses in weight and the average casualty losses by the two methods of transport.

Dr. Summerskill

The details for the comparison will take a few days to compile. I will, with permission, circulate the reply in the Official Report when it is available.
