HC Deb 02 August 1866 vol 184 c1897

said, he wished to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether Her Majesty's Government will take into their early consideration the Recommendations of the Select Committee on East India Communications?


in reply, said, the recommendations of the Select Committee came under two heads—namely, Telegraphic and Postal Communications. As to the former, he was not able to give the hon. Member any information at present; but, with regard to the postal communications, the matter had been under the consideration of the Government, and it was proposed as soon as possible to give notice to determine the existing contracts with the view of carrying out the recommendation of the Committee.
