§ SIR JOHN LENG
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he can state what progress has been made in the negotiations for an improved mail service to Canada; and whether the ports of arrival and departure and the speed of the mail steamers have now been fixed?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Mr. J. CHAMBERLAIN,) Birmingham, W.
No, sir; I am unable to give any information. The matter is still under the consideration of the Government of the Dominion of Canada.
