§ THE PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. BONAR LAW, Glasgow, Blackfriars)
I have communicated with the Managing Committee of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway on the subject of the hon. Member's Question, and am informed that it has been a long-standing practice on that line to light all carriages which have to pass through tunnels, and that every train running between Hildenborough and London is so lighted. It is added that since the commencement of this year there have only been six cases of failure of light from accidental causes in individual compartments.
