MR. McKENNA (Monmouthshire, N.)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the statutory liability upon the South Eastern and Chatham Railway Company, to convey free of charge 1201bs. of luggage for each first class passenger and 100lbs. for each second class passenger between all stations on its system, will he state whether, in the case of through traffic over this railway to the Continent, the Board of Trade has power to insist that each excess luggage ticket shall distinguish the amount levied for transit between stations on the Company's system and the amount levied for the sea passage and the continental journey.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The answer is in the negative.
