§ MR. FIELD
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the German State railways realised a profit of £23,200,000 last year; and whether he will consider the advisability of introducing the system of State ownership in Ireland, with a view to decrease the burden of taxation, and to increase transit facilities by cheaper rates for goods and passengers.
§ MR. WYNDHAM
This question is similar to one put by the hon. Member 1085 and answered by me on Friday last.* As soon as I obtain information on the first paragraph I will communicate with the hon. Member.
