§ MR. BODKIN () Roscommon, N.
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade is he aware that traders in Boyle have to pay £4 per wagon of six tons by rail from Dublin, while traders in Sligo, which is 30 miles further, have only £3 to pay; and will he have inquiries instituted and remonstrance made with a view to the removal of this state of things?
§ * THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. BRYCE,) Aberdeen, S.
The hon. Member does not state the particular description of traffic on which the rates he quotes are charged; if he will give further particulars I will 763 communicate with the Company. Possibly sea competition has something to do with the difficulty.
