I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received any communication from the railway managers in respect to the promised improvements for the more humane transit of live stock by rail?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
No, Sir, not yet.
§ MR. RITCHIE
I cannot expect the railway companies to give me information as to every stage of their proceedings.
