the policy drawn up by Lord teching had been pursued, the railwould have been "butchered". This was y Mr. John Morris, joint Parliamentary :ary to the Ministry of Transport, at astle upon Tyne this week. This had ne clear, he said, over the past few is while the White Paper on British ays was being prepared.
Morris was starting a fact-finding tour
of all the regions. He described the White Paper, which is to be published in a few weeks' time, as an honest appraisal of what was best in the nation's interest.
