HC Deb 06 June 1899 vol 72 cc437-8

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he will explain why the Return relating to the American Mail Service, ordered 27th February, has not yet been issued.


The preparation of this Return involved some correspondence with the United States Post Office and a considerable amount of clerical labour, so that there has been no undue delay in compiling it. It was presented on the 4th ult., ordered to be printed on the 5th, and will be in the hands of Members one day this week.
