HC Deb 06 December 1911 vol 32 cc1406-7

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has had any complaints submitted to him with regard to delays by the railway companies in Ireland in the transit of Irish butter and the consequent injury to this important branch of industry; and if so, will those complaints be inquired into with the view of compelling those railway companies to carry out their statutory obligations to the trading public?


My hon. Friend has forwarded me several such complaints, which are now under consideration. I will communicate with him further as soon as the necessary inquiries have been completed.
