HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 c1588
MR. GIBBS (Bristol, W.)

To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any jurisdiction over funicular and cliff railways, and, if so, what.

(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) If a railway of either description were constructed by or under statutory authority and came within the meaning of the Regulation of Railways Acts the Board of Trade would have the same jurisdiction as they possess in regard to other railways opened or proposed to be opened for the public conveyance of passengers.
