§ MR. WEIR
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been directed to the condition of Ludgate Hill Station; and if he will institute an inquiry with a view to compel the company to make such alterations and improvements as may be necessary for the safety and comfort of the large number of the general public using the station.
§ MR. RITCHIE
Yes, Sir, my attention has been directed to this matter, and the Board of Trade have been in correspondence with the company. I am informed that, owing to the want of space, it is quite impossible to carry out any extensive alterations at the station, but that plans are being prepared showing what improvements can be effected, especially in regard to the access from the platforms. The Board also understood that orders have been given for the station to be lighted throughout by electricity.
