HC Deb 08 May 1905 vol 145 c1113

To ask the Secretary to the Treasury what are the administrative duties connected with the Railway and Canal Commission; and for how many days have the Commissioners sit for the discharge of those duties in each year from 1896 to 1904, inclusive.

(Answered by Mr. Victor Cavendish.) The administrative duties referred to are all proceedings in connection with complaints and applications made to the Commissioners under the Railway and Canal Traffic Acts, 1854 to 1904, other than those which take place in open Court. The only time record kept is that of public sittings, as to which I have already furnished the hon. Member with information.
