HC Deb 03 November 1902 vol 113 cc1384-5
MR. SCOTT MONTAGU (Hampshire, New Forest)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has yet approached the railway companies with reference to the carriage of petroleum spirit and other inflammable liquids; and, if so, with what result.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) I have been in communication with the Railway Companies' Association in this matter, and am informed that a meeting to discuss the questions involved has been arranged for tomorrow between the general managers of the several railways and a deputation, representing those interested in this traffic.
