asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Transport whether he has any powers of control over the alteration of ordinary traffic on railways during race meetings, causing grave inconvenience to the regular users of the line; and whether he will consider the desirability of asking Parliament for such powers as will enable him to exercise some control in this direction?

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. If the hon. Baronet will give my hon. Friend particulars of the grave inconvenience which is alleged to have been caused, he will bring the matter to the attention of the railway company in question, but he is unable to advise legislation in the sense indicated in the last part of the question.
