HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 cc1718-9W
Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any power to control the display of advertisements inside railway carriages; if so, whether the large and unsightly advertisements on enamelled iron plates recently affixed to the. inside of the doors of railway carriages belonging to the London, Brighton, and South Coast Railway Company have been displayed with his knowledge and approval; and, if not, whether he will make inquiries into the matter, with a view to discouraging displays which give offence to many travellers?


The display of advertisements in railway carriages does not come within the control of the Board of Trade, and I do not think that I can take any action in the matter.
