HC Deb 14 February 1895 vol 30 c755
SIR G. BADEN-POWELL (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, whether he can give the House any further information as to the projected telegraphic cable across the Pacific Ocean; and whether he can lay upon the Table any further Papers on the subject?


Discussions and negotiations are in progress in relation to this line of cable, but it would not be in the public interest to enter into a detailed statement at this moment, nor, I fear, can I give any definite undertaking as to the time at which it will be possible to lay further Papers on the Table.
