HC Deb 10 May 1909 vol 4 c1624W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the Great Northern Railway Company of Ireland are denying railway facilities to the inhabitants of Ballydougherty, Poyntzpass, county Armagh, by refusing to erect a platform there; whether he is aware that the inhabitants of the district have offered the railway company the necessary land for the purpose free of cost, and have proposed to erect the platform at their own cost if the railway ocmpany would contribute £100 towards such cost, and have further offered to guarantee 10 per cent. per annum on the outlay for 10 years; and whether, in view of the fact that some such accommodation is needed, he will call upon the railway company to carry out their duty of serving this district through which their line runs?


The Board of Trade have communicated with the railway company on the subject, and have received a reply, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
