Cargoes have been landed there, consigned to paper works on the West Coast, which have their discharge berths and which could take those cargoes, and yet they are taken across the country. Why?

Orders of the Day — Supply.: Ministry of Transport. (10 Mar 1920)

He appointed these Ministers whose fees we are...
