HC Deb 14 July 1910 vol 19 c613

asked whether, in view of the dissatisfaction that prevails regarding the present state of the law affecting railways and railway traffic, which has been declared by at least one judge to be revolting, and seeing that many other authorities have declared it to be practically impossible to give a decision complying with the requirements of all the existing Statutes, the Department will consider the advisability of appointing a Royal Commission to inquire into the present state of the law regarding railways, with a view to the codification of the same on similar lines to the Companies Consolidation Act, 1908?


I am not acquainted with the declarations to which my hon. Friend refers, and should be glad if he would let me have copies of any such statements. In any case I should doubt whether a Royal Commission of the nature suggested would be an appropriate remedy.
