HC Deb 15 May 1893 vol 12 cc917-8
MR. COLLERY (Sligo, N.)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has had any communication with the Midland Great Western Railway Company of Ireland relative to a refund of the excessive charges put on by that Company in January last; whether he is aware that those charges amounted in some cases to 40 and 50 per cent. on certain goods between Dublin and Sligo; whether those rates have been voluntarily withdrawn by that Company, or whether it was owing to competition from a competing line; and if any, or all, those increased charges are still continued on goods to intermediate stations where no competition exists; and whether these charges are regulated by mileage rates, or by such as the circumstances of the case will permit them to make?


I have communicated with the Company, but have not had time to receive their reply.
