Mr Joseph Sparks: ...significant that we hear many complaints in this House about passenger train delays on the L.N.E.R., the L.M.S. and, to some extent, on the Great Western Railway, but very few about delays on the Southern Railway.

Soap (Rationing) Order (10 Jul 1946)

Hon. Edward Carson: ...clean the engines, they repair the engines—[Interruption]—I ask hon. Members opposite to listen; they are not famed for listening to things they do not want to hear.
