HC Deb 22 June 1903 vol 124 c83

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to complaints as to the delay in delivery of saltless Irish butter coming from Limerick and consigned to the Mapleton Dairy Company, Edenbridge, Kent, and as to the non-delivery of two boxes of the same class butter consigned to the Cash Stores, High Street, Dovercourt, sent from Limerick on the 11th inst. and not delivered on the 16th inst., and, if so, whether he will inquire into these complaints and take steps to make the railway companies responsible for the delay in fulfilling their obligations to the public.


Yes, Sir; the Board of Trade have received, through the hon. Member, a letter containing the complaints in question. Inquiry is being made of the railway companies concerned, and I shall be happy to inform the hon. Member of the result.
