HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 cc197-8W
Sir M. Redmayne

asked the Minister of Transport what reply he has made to the letter addressed to him on 12th November by A. W. Swann and Co., of Brazil Street, Leicester, about British Railways.

Mr. Tom Fraser

A reply was sent by my Department on 19th November. It explained that the questions raised by A. W. Swann and Co. about loss of a parcel on the railways and compensation were properly for the consideration of the Railways Board; and that the correspondence had accordingly been passed to the Board for reply. I am sending the right hon. Member a copy of the actual text of my Department's reply. I understand that the Railways Board is looking into the matter and will be replying to the firm in due course.
