§ MR. SLOAN (Belfast, S.)
To ask the President of the Board of Trade, if he has called the attention of any railway company to the new signal alarm recently submitted to him; and, if so, with what result.
(Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) Since my reply to the Question on this subject addressed to me by the hon. Member on the 12th of last month,† par-† See (4) Debates, cxxxiv., 1155.146 ticulars of several inventions of the character referred to have been submitted to the Board of Trade and their inspecting officers, but I am not aware whether these include the invention which the hon. Member has in mind cannot undertake to direct the attention of railway companies to any particular invention.
