HC Deb 06 November 1950 vol 480 cc23-4W
111. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Minister of Transport if he will direct that in future years the accounts of the Transport Commission shall show how much profit or loss, after allowing for interest and central charges, the railways and road haulage respectively, made in the year covered by the Transport Commission's latest annual Report, with comparative figures for earlier years.

Mr. Barnes

No. For the reasons given in paragraph 54 of the Report of the British Transport Commission for 1949, I do not consider it would be practicable to allocate the charges in the way suggested.
