HC Deb 13 July 1899 vol 74 c699

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade when the Mansion House Association on Railway and Canal Traffic may expect to receive a reply to their letter to the Board of Trade with reference to the neglect of the railway companies to supply on their sectional maps information as to their running powers. I may add that the date of the letter was 11th May.


The Board of Trade have not lost sight of this matter, and as recently as the 3rd of July the Department received a letter from the Clearing House intimating that the subject was to be brought before a meeting of general managers on the 25th instant, and that after that date a further communication would be addressed to the Board.
