asked the Minister of Transport whether a programme of replacement of 10 and 12 ton railway wagons by large sized trucks has yet been settled with his approval under subsection (2) of Section 4 of the Transport Act, 1947; over what period of years it is proposed to spread such replacement: and what is the total sum involved.

I am advised that a programme of wagon replacements unless of quite an exceptional character would not require my approval under Section 4 (2) of the Transport Act and, in fact, no application for such approval has been made by the British Transport Commission.
