Is it not fair to recognise that a great deal of public money is going into road communications as well as into the railways and that when people criticise developments on the railways they could equally criticise investment in roads? If we are to have a decent system of communications we need a great deal more investment in our railways for commuter services and many other purposes, as well as in roads.
