§ MR. WINGFIELD-DIGBY (Dorset, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the heavy milk rates charged on the Great Western Railway whilst the London and South Western Railway Company have made large and liberal concessions worth some £15 to £20 a year to many small dairy farmer in the West of England; and whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. J. BRYCE,) Aberdeen S.
No, Sir; I have not heard of the liberal concessions on the London and South Western Railway to which the 1444 hon. Member refers, but I am glad they have been made. I cannot deal with a complaint against the Great Western Railway Company made in such general terms. If the hon. Member will give me particulars of unreasonable treatment I will adopt the procedure laid down by Section 31 of the Railway and Canal Traffic Act, 1888.
