HC Deb 27 February 1912 vol 34 c1193

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the action of the Metropolitan Railway Company in subscribing £100 to the funds of the Anti-Socialist Union, which is ultra tires of the powers granted to the company by Act of Parliament; and whether he intends to put in force Section 17 of the Act of 1844 to restrain the company from such action as being subversive of the public interest?


The Board of Trade are informed by the railway company that they have not subscribed, and do not propose to subscribe, to this union.
