HC Deb 06 July 1903 vol 124 c1403

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the attention of the Board of Works in Ireland has been drawn to the fact that on the 15th day of June last over 100 passengers were carried in open trucks or timber wagons (without any protection on the sides of the wagons) on the Burtonport and Letterkenny Extension Railway by the Lough Swilly Railway Company, which works the line, and that on the same occasion passengers were carried in each of the guard's and luggage vans; and, if so, will he say what remedy the Board of Works propose to adopt to compel the railway company to provide proper accommodation for the public under the terms of the working agreement.


The facts appear to be correctly stated. The Board of Works is in correspondence with the company, with the object of securing a remedy against the want of adequate accommodation in future.
