HC Deb 11 April 1893 vol 11 cc4-5

Order for Third Reading read.

Motion made, and Question propose "That the Bill be now read the third time."

MR. PARKER SMITH (Lanark, Partick)

said, that under this Bill the Govan Burghs Tramways Company would have no power whatever to charge more than ordinary fares on public holidays. He thought the question raised by the hon. Member for Peterborough was a proper one to refer to the Town Commissioners, which was the right body to decide all questions as to fares.


said, he entirely disagreed with that observation. It was the duty of the Board of Trade, and especially the House of Commons, to protect the public, and they should not in these cases leave it to any Town Commissioners whatever.

Motion agreed to.

Bill read the third time, and passed.
