HC Deb 19 February 1917 vol 90 cc995-6W

asked the Chief Secreatry for Ireland whether his attention has been called to the fact that every train between Dublin and Belfast on week-days and Sundays is provided either with a refreshment car or sleeping accommodation, and that restaurant cars are run on five Irish railways, whereas none are now run on the Great Western Railway, London and North-Western Railway, or Great Northern Railway, and only two are run on any trains travelling in Scotland; and whether he can take any steps to see that the same economy is practised on Irish railways as has been enforced in England?


My right hon. Friend has asked me to answer this question. I will obtain the observations of the Irish Railway Executive Committee on the suggestion made, and will thereafter communicate with the hon. Gentleman.
