HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2351
75. Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, to minimise the inconvenience to travelers from the Irish Free State to London after the 1st proximo, the same facilities for the prompt examination of personal luggage will be afforded at Euston and Paddington on the arrival of through trains from Ireland as now exist in the case of travellers arriving at Victoria or Charing Cross from the Continent?


At Victoria and Charing Cross, registered baggage from the Continent is examined, but not hand baggage, which is examined at Dover and Folkestone. The same facilities as regards registered baggage from the Free State will be afforded at Euston and Paddington, if there is a demand for them, and adequate arrangements are made by the railway companies.
