§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY (Limerick, W.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the Great Southern and Western Railway Company have for some time discontinued the Sunday trains between Limerick and Tralee, which were continually run by the Waterford and Limerick Railway Company; whether he has received a resolution of the traders and others in Abbeyfeale, in the county of Limerick, complaining of such action: and whether, seeing that by the amalgamation of the latter company with the former the public were guaranteed equal facilities to those heretofore enjoyed by them, he will, in view of the loss and inconvenience o the public caused by the discontinuance of these trains, take steps to have them continued.
§ MR. GERALD BALFOUR
I have received from the hon. Member a copy of the resolution to which he refers. I am inviting the observations of the railway company in the matter and will communicate with the hon. Member on receiving the company's reply.
