§ MR. FORTESCUE FLANNERY (Yorkshire, Shipley)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the official complaints of the Shipley District Council as to the alleged dangerous state of the platforms at the Saltaire railway station; whether he is aware that the station is frequently very crowded with traffic; and, if he will communicate with the Midland Railway Company 817 with a view to every possible step being taken to increase the safety and convenience of the Saltaire station?
§ MR. RITCHIE
My attention had not been called to this matter until the hon. Member's Question appeared on the Paper—no complaints having reached the Department on the subject. The Board of Trade are now in communication with the Midland Railway Company respecting it.
