The Ministry of Transport was first established by the Ministry of Transport Act 1919. The Act provided for the transfer to the new Ministry of powers and duties of any government department in respect of highways (from the Local Government Board), light railways (from the board of Trade), tramways, canals and inland waterways, roads, bridges and ferries, vehicles and traffic thereon, harbours, docks and piers.
