HC Deb 06 July 1903 vol 124 cc1400-1
*MR. HUGH LAW (Donegal, W.)

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether, in view of the fact that all the trains from Londonderry and Letterkenny to Burtonport on the Burtonport and Letterkenny Extension Railway were on the days of the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th of June last from two hours to six hours late in arriving at Burtonport, and that one train (the 5 p.m.) on the 24th did not arrive at all, he will say what action the Board of Works propose to take in reference to the failure of the Lough Swilly Railway Company in working the line.


The delays were due to failure of engines. The 5 p.m. train on the 24th June arrived at 11.45. The Board of Works is giving special attention to the matter with the object of securing punctual and satisfactory working of the line.
