§ MR. DALTON (Donegal, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury whether, in view of the resolution passed by the Board of Directors of the Finn Valley Railway Company, that they are prepared to work the extension railway from Stranorlar to Glenties at cost price, and, in view of his statement that the Government attach great importance to satisfactory arrangements for working being made, if possible, with existing railway companies, now that this company have proposed satisfactory arrangements for working this extension, the Government are now prepared to forward the Stranorlar and Glenties scheme?
§ *THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. JACKSON, Leeds, N.)
The proposals are receiving consideration; but I am unable to say at present whether the arrangements will be found to be satisfactory or not.
§ MR. DALTON
Is not the company who have undertaken to make the extension exactly the same company who have undertaken to work the Killybegs extension?
§ *MR. JACKSON
No doubt it is the company that works the West Donegal line; but I think the hon. Member will see that the arrangements for working the line may be very different.
