HC Deb 03 December 1906 vol 166 c562
MR. HUGH LAW (Donegal, W.)

To ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord-Lieutenant of Ireland whether he has received any complaints with regard to the treatment of passengers on the Letterkenny Railway on the Kith instant, and in particular as to delays, overcrowding, and failure to provide light in the carriages; and, if so, whether the Irish Government or the Board of Works will take steps to prevent a recurrence of the matters complained of.

(Answered by Mr. Runciman.) I learn that the Board of Works received information that delays to passenger trains were caused on the Kith ultimo by the derailment of a carriage at Cashelnagore which blocked the Burton-port line, and that a local train which was despatched from Letterkenny to Londonderry at 7.52 p.m. in place of one of the blocked trains was unprovided with lights. The Board immediately brought the circumstances to the notice of the company, and asked for an explanation. I understand that correspondence is still proceeding.
