§ MR. MORTON (Sutherland)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will represent to the railway companies which provide first-class sleeping carriages the necessity of reconsidering the question of providing third-class sleeping carriages before they come to Parliament to ask for further concessions.
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. KEARLEY, Devonport)
The railway companies are no doubt fully alive to the situation, and no action on the part of the Board of Trade seems necessary at the present moment.
§ MR. KEIR HARDIE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the Committee of Managers of Railway Companies recently decided not to introduce third-class sleepers?
§ MR. MORTON
Will the Board of Trade support the movement to secure third-class as well as first-class sleepers?
