§ Sir L. Ropner
asked the Minister of Transport what steps he has taken to ensure that the advisory group appointed to examine the structure, finance and working of the organisations controlled by the British Transport Commission will take into account the need to provide effective arrangements for consultation between British Railways and Inland Waterway Carriers in regard to rates on those traffics for which Inland Waterway Carriers can cater economically.
§ Mr. Marples
The terms of reference of the advisory group are wide, and I am sure that the group will take account of all relevant factors. It has already expressed its readiness to receive representations from interested parties.
