HC Deb 19 February 1894 vol 21 cc726-7
MR. DODD (Essex, Maldon)

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether it is the fact that at Kelvedon, Manningtree, Witham East, Hatfield, and Marks Tey signal boxes on the Great Eastern Railway the hours of duty of the signalmen are 12 hours, or thereabouts, on week days, and that at some of these boxes the hours are the same also on Sundays; and if he has no knowledge of the facts, he will inquire with reference thereto?


My attention has not been drawn to the particular signal cabins referred to by my hon. and learned Friend, but if ho will furnish me with a "representation" under the Rail- way Regulation Act of this Session inquiry shall be made.
