HC Deb 09 April 1891 vol 352 c125
MR. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General at what date it is probable that full advantage will be taken of the opening of the Forth and Tay Bridges to shorten the time occupied in forwarding and delivering letters between the large mercantile and manufacturing towns and districts in the North-East of England and the North-East of Scotland?


I am happy to say that use is already made of both the bridges referred to, with the result of some substantial acceleration in the service, but I am not aware in what respect further use can be more advantageously made of them for the conveyance of mails. If the hon. Member will favour me with any specific proposal on the subject I will with pleasure give it early and careful consideration.
