§ Motion made, and Question proposed, "That this Bill be now read a second time."
§ Sir FREDERICK BANBURY
This Bill would inflict considerable injury on railway companies, and would yield no corresponding advantage to the public. The object of the Bill is to allow railway tickets to be available practically for all time. It may at first sight seem not unreasonable that a railway ticket should be available for an unlimited time. The 1584 real objection to it is this: railway tickets have to be collected, and if railway tickets are not collected and sent back to the office from which they are issued, it is quite impossible to know how many tickets are out at any given time, and whether or not they are being fraudulently dealt with.
§ And it being Eleven of the clock the Debate stood adjourned.
§ House adjourned at One minute after Eleven o'clock.
