§ 83. Mr. N. Macpherson
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that output of export industries at Langholm, Dumfriesshire, is being adversely affected through the curtailment of overtime due to the cancellation of late trains by which the workers normally travelled home; and whether he will consult with the Transport Commission, with a view to ensuring that some means of transport is provided at the time normally required.96W
§ Mr. Rhodes
I understand that only one mill at Langholm is at present working overtime, and 10 workers normally travel by the 9.41 p.m. train now cancelled. I am, however, having the matter investigated.
