HC Deb 14 March 1879 vol 244 c905

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether answers have been received to the Circular of the Board, relating to continuous foot-boards, from those Railway Companies which had not replied at the date of the last Return?


We have received answers to the Circular of the Board of Trade relating to continuous footboards, since the presentation of the last Return, from the London, Brighton, and South Coast, the Taff Vale, the Manchester, Sheffield, and Lincolnshire, and the London and South-Western Railway Companies, and as soon as the replies of the 60 Companies who have not yet answered our Circular have been received, I shall be happy to lay them upon the Table of the House.
