HC Deb 15 May 1882 vol 269 cc676-7

asked the Postmaster General, If, after consideration of the many memorials presented to him on the subject, he is able to give a favorable reply to the request for the establishment of a Mail Train by the London and South Western Railway from Basingstoke to Exeter?


Sir, in answer to the hon. Member, I beg to state that the matter referred to in his Question is receiving careful consideration; but that the inquiries which are being made on the subject cannot be completed for some little time. I can assure him that no unnecessary delay will be allowed to occur in arriving at a decision upon it.
