HC Deb 06 March 1900 vol 80 c175

Read a second time, and committed.

MR.LOUGH (Islington, W.)

I have an Instruction on the Paper with regard to this Bill which I understand the promoters are willing to consider favourably. It is to the same effect as the Instructions carried last week with regard to similar Bills, and the object is to secure some necessary amendments in the clause relating to cheap fares for the labouring classes and the hours at which workmen's cars shall run. In this Bill the clause is in about the worst form of any I have seen this session, for it provides that the cars shall not run after 6 a.m. or till after 6 p.m. I beg to move the Instruction standing in my name.

Ordered, That it be an Instruction to the Committee on the Welling borough and District Tramroads Bill to inquire whether it is desirable that Clause 44 of the Bill (Cheap fares for the labouring classes) should be amended in respect of the hours at which the cars should be run, the number of cars to be provided, and the maximum and the minimum fares to be charged.—(Mr. Lough.)
