HC Deb 11 May 1896 vol 40 cc994-5

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether, in the arrangement for the new Transatlantic Mail Service between the United Kingdom and Canada, consideration will be given to the expediency of the steamers calling at a port in the north of Ireland to embark and disembark mails?


As stated in reply to a Question on Thursday last, the conditions of tender for the proposed new mail service between this country and Canada provide that the mail steamers shall call at an Irish port, if required to do so. ["Hear, hear!"]
