§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Secretary of State for India if he will state whether any steps have yet been taken to dual with the overcrowding of native passengers in the third-class carriages of Indian railways; and, if so, will lie state what has been, or is being, done in the matter.
(Answer.) This matter is one as to which any complaints should be addressed to the local authorities. The inquiry which was instituted some time back into the working of the railway systems of India will doubtless take cognizance of any inconvenient overcrowding which may be reported to them.—(India Office.)
