asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any negotiations have passed, and with what result, between himself and the railway authorities for the purpose of having Customs examinations of travellers' luggage made under cover instead of on the open platform at Victoria Station; and whether he can now state the result of these negotiations?

The reply to the first part of the question is in the negative. As has been explained on previous occasions, the arrangements for unloading passengers' baggage and the provision of accommodation for its examination by the Customs are matters for the railway company concerned, but a covered enclosure has recently been provided by the railway company for Customs examinations at Victoria Station.
