§ MR. JAMES BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he will communicate with the leading railway companies on the subject of the carriage by rail of bicycles, with the view of inducing them to convey bicycles at lower rates than the present very high rates, to provide upon some trains vans or compartments of vans fitted for the conveyance of bicycles, and to supply at the left luggage offices of the large stations a better provision than now exists for the reception and safe keeping of cycles?
§ MR. RITCHIE
I shall be happy to communicate the points referred to in the right hon. Member's Question to the Railway Companies' Association, and ask that they may receive favourable consideration.
