Punch's Essence of Parliament
Regular Feature, Proceedings, Drollery
Railways, Transport, Accidents, Government
Notes several speeches on 'Communication between Railway Passengers and Guards' and praises Henry B Sheridan for introducing a bill forcing railway companies to 'make the necessary arrangements', although it notes the government's opposition to the bill, including Stephen Cave's claim that making directors take care of their customers would be a 'personal insult'. Observes that Mr Punch means to 'insult them [the directors] a little more'.
