HC Deb 05 April 1892 vol 3 cc689-90
MR. THORBURN (Peebles and Selkirk)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General when he expects to introduce the Bill for extending to Scotland the provisions of an Act, now in force in England, whereby Local Authorities may assess for the purpose of meeting any deficiency arising out of guarantees given to the Post Office in connection with telegraph extension in rural districts?


Instructions have been given for the preparation of a Bill for this purpose, and I hope shortly to be able to introduce it.
