HC Deb 28 March 1865 vol 178 c370

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether any measures are about to be taken to remedy the defects of the Postal System of Fife so frequently complained of?


said, in reply, that the postal arrangements in the county of Fife were not so satisfactory as the Post Office wished to make them. When the Post Office requested the North British Railway Company (he believed) to allow such terms as the Post Office considered reasonable for the more general use of their trains, the Company declined to accede to them. The negotiations were not successful; but they were still in progress, and he hoped the result would turn out to be satisfactory.
