HC Deb 05 July 1883 vol 281 c475

asked the Postmaster General, Whether the mails from the Seychelles to the Mauritius were intentionally left behind at the Seychelles last March by the Messageries Maritime steam-vessel subsidized to convey them; and, whether Postal communication between these islands was suspended for one month in consequence?


In reply to the right hon. and gallant Member, I may state that, except from a letter which he forwarded to me from a gentleman who had recently returned from Australia, I have received no report of the delay to which he refers in his Question.
