MR. J. E. ELLIS
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade what steps have been taken by the Board of Trade in respect of Section 6 of "The Regulation of Railways Act, 1889?"
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir MICHAEL HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
The Board of Trade informed the Railway Companies that they proposed to fix the 1st July next, as the date from which every passenger ticket is to have the fare printed upon it. The Board propose to adhere to that date, as a rule, but where there is any real difficulty, they will grant an extension to the 1st January, 1891, but not beyond that.
