HC Deb 19 June 1890 vol 345 c1363

In the absence of the hon. Member for Cornwall, Camborne, I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he has seen the statements in the Evening Nevis and Post of the 18th, to the effect that, in St. Martin's-le-Grand, work, according to all accounts, is being impeded at an increasing ratio, to the grave inconvenience of business men; and whether he still adheres to his declaration that there is absolutely no foundation for such statements?


I have not only not seen the statements to which the hon. Member refers, but am assured by those who, on my behalf, have examined the paper mentioned that they are not to be found there. For the credit of the paper in question I am glad that this should be so, for had such statements been made, I should have felt constrained to qualify them as absolutely untrue.
