HC Deb 11 May 1893 vol 12 cc631-2

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company are charging 4d. per firkin more than last year for single firkins sent from Ennis to Cork and intervening stations?


I am informed by the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company that they have a large number of consignments of single firkins of butter by passenger train, and that the rates have not been advanced; they remain as they were in 1892. The hon. Member has been good enough to send me a delivery note; but it was a note of the Great Southern and Western Railway Company, and not of the Waterford and Limerick, and I am in communication with that company on the subject.
