§ MR. T. W. RUSSELL (Tyrone, S.)
To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the Great Northern Railway Company (Ireland) decline to forward parcels leaving Tynan, county Armagh, at 6.18 p.m., to Glasgow by the Ardrossan boat leaving Belfast at 9.30, unless advised by telegram of their despatch and the payment of one shilling extra; and if he can take any steps to protect the traders of the county from this charge.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The Board of Trade have communicated with the Great Northern Railway of Ireland on the subject of the Question, and I have directed that a copy of the reply received from the company shall be forwarded to the hon. Member.
