We study the possibilities to analyse the data on leading neutrons production at first LHC runs. These data could be used to extract from it π + p and π + π + cross-sections. In this note we estimate relative contributions of π, ρ and a 2 reggeons to charge exchanges and discuss related problems of measurements.
