HC Deb 30 April 1895 vol 33 cc124-5
MR. JASPER MORE (Shropshire, Ludlow)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has now any information as to the financial assistance given by foreign Governments to the construction of Light Railways?


The information received at the Foreign Office was sent to the Board of Trade in December for the information of the Light Railways Committee.

MR. GRANT LAWSON (York, N. R., Thirsk)

asked the President of the Board of Trade to say definitely that the Light Railways Bill would not be taken that night.


replied that if any serious objection, were taken, on the ground that the Bill had not been properly considered in the country, it would not be proceeded with that night.
