HC Deb 29 June 1905 vol 148 cc528-9
MR. ROCHE (Galway, E.)

To ask the Secretary to the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to a resolution of the Ballinasloe Rural District Council, in which it is stated that the district of Kilconnell loses nearly £1,000 per annum for want of a railway station; and whether he will take some action towards improving the condition of the people of that district.

(Answered by Mr. Bonar Law.) A copy of the resolution was forwarded to the Board of Trade, but so far as the Board are aware the company are under no statutory obligation to build a station at Kilconnell, and the Department have no jurisdiction in the matter.
