Is the Prime Minister aware that in his statement on 20th July last on the economic crisis he said that one of his measures was his determination to see that the freight liner trains operated at open terminals. Now, six months later, we see the Transport Holding Company spending £500,000 to appease the unions in their closed terminals policy. Is the Prime Minister going to take action instead of just preaching on this subject?
