HC Deb 03 March 1893 vol 9 cc979-80

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that, owing to an increase of over 30 per cent. in the common fish rates between Penzance and Plymouth, a large fleet of fishing boats is sustaining great loss; and whether, in these circumstances, he will make such representations to the Great Western Railway Company as will induce that Company to modify these rates immediately, as no future rebate will benefit the fishermen?


No, Sir; I have not had any information upon the point referred to in the hon. Member's question. If he will furnish me with details of the rates complained of, I will cause representations to be made to the Great Western Railway Company.
