Report from the Select Committee of the House of Lords appointed to take into consideration the best means of enforcing one uniform system of management on railroads in operation or to be constructed, and to secure the due fulfilment of the provisions of the acts of Parliament under which the companies have obtained their powers, whereby greater accommodation and safety may be ensured to the public; to take into consideration what means may best be adopted for diminishing the extravagant expenses attendant on obtaining acts of Parliament for legitimate and necessary undertakings, and at the same time for discouraging the formation of schemes got up for the mere purpose of speculation; to consider what legislative measures could be framed to protect individuals from the injury they may sustain by the laying do in lines of railway through their property, without subjecting them to the ruinous expense of opposing bills in Parliament: and to report thereon to the House: together with the minutes of evidence taken before the said committee [electronic resource].
