Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

FEARS that, as a quid pro quo for the provision by the L.N.E. Railway Co. of improved facilities for timber importers at Hull Docks, the railway company would obtain a virtual monopoly of inland timber traffic from Hull, have been dispelled.

It is understood that, whilst improvements estimated to cost 7e250,000 are to be made by the company, a definite assurance has been given that road transport will have full access to the docks. When it became known that the L.N.E.R. was proposing to make regulations regarding the transport of timber imported by its tenants at the docks, which would have meant that all the timber imported into Hull would have to be transported by rail, both the C.M.U.A. and A.R.O. made vigorous protests and organized opposition to the proposals, as was reported in The Commercial Motor at the time.

Traders also feared the effects of railway dictation.
