§ Mr. PETO
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 996W 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?
§ Mr. G. ROBERTS
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.
