HC Deb 11 December 1888 vol 331 c1760
MR. CHANNING (Northampton, E.)

asked the President of the Board of Trade, Whether the Board of Trade has as yet made any orders on Railway Companies under Section 32 of "The Railway and Canal Traffic Act, 1888," requiring them to furnish additional statistics in their Returns to the Board of Trade; and, if so, on what subjects such statistics have been ordered?


The Board of Trade have not yet required the Railway Companies to furnish additional statistics under the Railway and Canal Traffic Act, and they cannot do so until the Act comes into operation. The question will not be overlooked by the Board of Trade, and early next year I intend to deal with Returns as to couplings.
