HC Deb 08 August 1904 vol 139 c1356

I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will use his influence with the Caledonian and North British Railway Companies to induce them to furnish ordinary third class carriages on the workmen's trains running from Glasgow to Rutherglen and Clyde Bank, and Glasgow to Kilbowie Road, instead of the present accommodation consisting of worn-out carriages in many instances without windows and with defective lighting.


No previous complaint has been made to me with regard to the carriages used on the trains referred to. The hon. Member is probably aware that the Board of Trade have no powers to deal with the matter, but I will call the attention of the railway companies concerned to the complaint.
