HC Deb 23 February 1866 vol 181 cc969-70

Can the right hon. Gentleman answer the Question I put to him the other night, and which he was then unable to answer? [See page 868.]


I thought I had answered the Question relating to the bridge, and I must give the same answer I did before—namely, that the railway in question was open previous to the time when the Board of Trade had any jurisdiction or power of inspection. I assume we have now power, but no representation has been made to the Board of Trade. I am not aware that at any recent period of time our attention has been called to the subject. I promised the right hon. Baronet to make inquiry, but I have not yet had time to do so fully.
