HC Deb 10 August 1904 vol 140 c8

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the fact that the Government are at the present time negotiating with the London and North Western Railway Company, with a view of extending the existing accommodation of the company in the Holyhead Harbour, he will take measures to safeguard the interests of the town of Holyhead against any encroachment of the rights now enjoyed by the inhabitants; whether he will state what progress has been made with such negotiations; and when they are likely to be complete.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The hon. Member will no doubt recollect that in answer to a Question he put on 21st February, 1901,† I informed him that the negotiations with the London and North Western had been abandoned. The Board of Trade have not resumed negotiations with the company for an extension of their accommodation in Holyhead Harbour. † See (4) Debates, lxxxix., 686.
