HC Deb 14 February 1893 vol 8 cc1385-6
MR. MORROGH (Cork Co., S.E.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he has received a copy of a resolution from the County of Cork Agricultural Society, in which they complain that whereas they had believed that the outcome of the Railway Commission would be to reduce the rates, the rates are, on the contrary, increased, at a time when agriculture and trade are in a most depressed condition, and express their hope that the Railway Companies will see their way to reduce their charges to the old rates at least; and, if so, what action is he prepared to take in the matter?


I have received a copy of the resolution to which the hon. Member refers, and I am asking the County of Cork Agricultural Society to furnish me with details of the actual rates of which complaint is made, in order that I may communicate in the matter with the Railway Companies Association.
