asked whether the Royal Commission on Railways appointed in October, 1913, has yet made any Report, interim or otherwise, to the Government; if they propose to continue their sittings and hearing of evidence which were suspended during the War; and can he give the House any approximate date as to when the final Report of this Commission will be ready?

The Prime Minister has asked me to answer this question. The Royal Commission on Railways suspended its sittings in January, 1915, without having issued any Report, and in present circumstances it is not intended to ask them to resume their sittings and to take further evidence.
