The allied associations went into conference with the companies asking: 1. That the railway companies should accept responsibility for loss of or damage to cycles, and that the practice of contracting out of their re- sponsibility should cease. In reply, the companies agree to quote a limited risk rate, with a condition that they (the com- panies) will accept liability for all claims in respect of loss or damage exceeding 10s. Such losses or damage under 10s. will be covered by a previous payment of a uniform insurance fee of Id., irre- spective of distance. The future rates to be as follows: Not exceeding 25 miles 6d.
