HC Deb 29 July 1868 vol 193 cc1921-2

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Why the Public cannot be supplied with the Maps of the Ordnance Survey, as at this time no complete copies of all the Maps can be procured in London; and, why arrangements are not made by which complete sets and portions of the Ordnance Survey publications can be obtained by the Public and the Trade through the Stationery Office, under whose direction the Maps and publications of the Geological Ordnance Survey are satisfactorily issued?


said, in reply, that, on account of the bulky nature of the maps, there might be some difficulty in obtaining them, though he had never himself experienced the slightest difficulty, lie believed there was no place in England where any portion of the Ordnance Survey might not at once be obtained. It was now under consideration whether it would be convenient to supply them through the Stationery Office, but he was not aware that any practical inconvenience arose from the present arrangement.
