HC Deb 16 July 1867 vol 188 c1621

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, Whether the Postmaster General has taken any further steps towards the amalgamation of the Telegraphic and Postal systems of the country since the subject was brought under his notice in February last by the Association of Chambers of Commerce?


said, the Postmaster General had been unable to take any step, because an Act of Parliament was necessary for the purpose. As his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer had said yesterday, the subject was still under the consideration of the Government.
