If my hon. friend cannot understand plain language, then I am afraid that I cannot elucidate any further for him.
There are one or two other aspects of this legislation with which I should like to deal briefly. The first is that under this legislation the board of transport commissioners is for the first time being given the power to examine competitive rates. What the result of the examination of competitive rates by the board will be it is impossible at this stage to say with assurance. But with that power given to the board by this legislation we shall have the assurance, which we have never had before, that any competitive rate that a railway brings into effect must be in truth competitive; that the competition must exist, and that the rate proposed as a competitive rate is sufficient to reimburse the railway for the services performed so that it will not be in the position, for purposes of competition, of performing expensive services at a ridiculously low figure, recouping its losses from some other traffic.
