HC Deb 29 April 1904 vol 134 c15

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Donegal County Council have applied to the Board of Trade for the appointment of arbitrators under the Tramways (Ireland) Act, 1883, in order to ascertain the surplus profits after providing for working expenses since the opening of the Buncrana to Carndonagh Rail way; and, if so, will he state what has been the cause of the delay in appointing the said arbitrators.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) Arbitrators for the purposes of the Londonderry and Lough Swilly (Carndonagh Extension) Railway Order, 1898, were appointed on the 1st February last, and the solicitors to the Donegal County Council were informed of the appointment on the same day.
