HC Deb 04 August 1902 vol 112 c495
MR. D. A. THOMAS (Merthyr Tydvil)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if, before giving any further extension of time to the Merthyr Electric Tramway Company in which to complete their system between Cefn and Merthyr, he will consult the Councils of the Merthyr Tydvil Urban District and Vaynor and Penderyn Rural Districts.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) It is the practice of the Board of Trade to consult the local authorities in these cases and this will no doubt be done before a further extension of time is given to this company.
