HC Deb 22 March 1849 vol 103 cc1122-3

wished to ask the right hon. Baronet the President of the Board of Control, whether any arrangement had been made between the Court of Directors and the Board of Control, with reference to railway communication in India? if so, whether that arrangement was likely to be satisfactory to parties desirous of investing capital in these undertakings?


said, that after the long consideration which the Board of Control had given this important subject, they had thought it their duty to transmit to the Court of Directors a plan, with regard to which they had thought it likely the court might come to some terms with the different railroad companies. That plan had been laid before the Directors last Monday, and would receive their earliest consideration. He believed the court coincided in the views of the Board of Control on the subject; the plan only awaited the decision of the different railroad companies, and the moment that was obtained he should inform the House of the result.

Subject at an end.
