HC Deb 23 July 1912 vol 41 c1006W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the Great Northern Railway Company of Ireland refuse to stop their Sunday excursion trains to take passengers to Warrenpoint; and if he will take such action as will compel the company to carry out their reasonable obligations towards the people of that district?


The railway company inform me that all the Sunday excursion trains which they run to Warrenpoint are specially arranged to convey organised excursion parties to that place direct from their home stations. They add that there is an adequate service of ordinary trains on Sundays enabling passengers from all stations on the north-eastern portion of the company's system to visit Warrenpoint, and this service they believe to be satisfactory to the travelling public concerned.
