HC Deb 02 April 1889 vol 334 cc1380-1

asked whether the Postmaster General would take into consideration the advisability of altering the title "long sea route" to "cheap sea route" in all advertisements and official notifications of the new fourpenny service to Australia direct?


My right hon. Friend does not consider that it would be desirable to make the change suggested. He prefers the term "All sea route," and intends to adopt it in all official notices issued by the Post Office in future in relation to mails for Australia embarked on board the Imperial contract packets in the Thames or at Plymouth.
