§ SIR CAMERON GULL (Devonshire, Barnstaple)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the railway companies have come to an arrangement as to the amount of passengers' luggage which they will allow to be carried free of charge; and whether he can state the rates which are to be charged for excess luggage.
§ MR. RITCHIE
The Board of Trade have not at present received any further communication from the Railway Association, and I am not, therefore, in a position to say whether the railway companies have adopted any concerted action in the matter. I have, however, seen it stated that some of them have agreed to an allowance of free luggage of 150, 120 and 100 lbs.
