THE SELECT COMMITTEE ON STANDING ORDERS have agreed

to the following SPECIAL REPORT, LONDONDERRY AND

LOUGH SWILLY RAILWAY-PETITION FOR BILL: The Head Office of this Company and part of the Railway are in Northern Ireland, while the greater part of the Company's undertaking is situate in Southern Ireland.

The objects of the Bill are to apply certain provisions of the Companies Clauses Acts, to obtain additional powers of borrowing in respect of existing and authorised capital, to repeal the power to borrow of the Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway Act, 1918, and to apply to the powers of borrowing sought by the Bill some of the provisions of that Act.

The Bill has been referred to the Examiners who have reported as follows:

* They feel doubts as to the due construction of the Standing Orders in their application to the Petition for the Londonderry and Lough Swilly Railway Bill, inasmuch as the Bill applies to the Irish Free State and Northern Ireland and they are unable to find any instructions in the Standing Orders directing them to deal with such a case.

They further report that the Standing Orders, if they should apply, are not complied with, inasmuch as notices of the intended application to Parliament were not published in the “ London Gazette" until the 27th April, 1923, nor in the “ Loi derry Sentinel ” and “Donegal Vindicator," newspapers published in the counties of Londonderry and Donegal respectively, until the 21st and 28th April, 1923.

Printed copies of the Bill were not deposited in the Private Bill
Office until the 26th April, 1923, or at the Treasury and other Public
Departments until the 26th April, 1923."

J. F. SYMONS-JEUNE.
EDWARD GULLY.

The Committee entertain grave doubt as to whether it is competent for the promoters, a Company domiciled in Northern Ireland, to apply for a Private Bill in this House if the subject matter of the Private Bill relates to Ireland, and have decided to make this Special Report ; and to ask for directions from the House.

'The cost of printing and publishing this Report is estimated by the Stationery Office at £1 7s. Od.
