HC Deb 19 February 1904 vol 130 c444
MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the increased cost of the Tanat Valley Railway in excess of the original estimate, he will recommend an increased Government grant towards the alleviation of the extra local taxation incurred by the local authority.

(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) This matter is one for the Treasury. If application is made to that Department, and the Board of Trade should be consulted thereon, I will give full consideration to all the circumstances of the case.
