HC Deb 18 June 1901 vol 95 cc724-5
MR. MURNAGHAN (Tyrone, Mid)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received a copy of a resolution from the Armagh County Council condemning the action of the Great Northern Railway Company in failing to provide the necessary facilities to Ulster fruit growers; and, seeing that consignors frequently wait for hours before their perishable goods are forwarded, too late for market, and that choice fruit is conveyed in trucks previously used by cattle, and having regard to the rates charged, whether he will cause the Department of Agriculture in Ireland to inquire into and report upon these matters with the view of remedying by legislation or otherwise the alleged grievances.


The resolution has been received, and inquiry is now being made into the matter by the Department of Agriculture.
