HC Deb 27 June 1890 vol 346 c204
MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether it is his intention to publish a Jubilee Report this year, giving full particulars of the progress of the Department during the last 50 years, with all details as to changes in inland, foreign, and colonial rates, &c?


In reply to the hon. Member, I have to state that I had not contemplated the compilation of so stupendous a work as that to which the hon. Member refers, and, indeed, there would not be time within the limits of an ordinary Session to collect, collate, verify, and edit the postal history of the past 50 years.
