§ MR. BUCHANAN
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that passengers between London and Scotland whoso luggage is paid for and booked through to stations in Scotland are surcharged on reaching Scotland according to the higher scale for excess luggage for that portion of the journey that is performed on the Scottish lines; and whether he will urge on the Scottish railway companies the necessity for the removal of this inconvenience.
§ MR. RITCHIE
The point raised by the hon. Member shall be brought to the attention of the Scottish companies. It is most desirable that there should be uniformity of practice among all the companies with regard to this matter.
