§ 67. Mr. LUNDON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the inconvenience caused to passengers travelling from Ireland to England because of the delay of close on two hours at Holyhead before the train leaves; whether this delay is due to the action of the Department acting through the committee of general managers or otherwise; and, if not, whether he will call the attention of the railway company to this inconvenience?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Wardle)
At the request of my right hon. Friend, the London and North-Western Railway Company are in communication with the Post Office authorities with a view to making arrangements, if possible, for the train to leave Holyhead earlier and to arrive in London about midnight.
§ Mr. LUNDON
May I ask now that the Board of Trade are in communication with the Post Office will they try to arrange that the 8.10 p.m. train from Euston to Holyhead will be run direct to the pier there, instead of compelling the people to loll about Holyhead for three hours?
§ Mr. WARDLE
If the hon. Member will give me notice of that question I will have it considered also.
