HC Deb 19 February 1900 vol 79 c375

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will explain the cause of the delay in the construction of the Nyassa Railway, British Central Africa; and will he state whether there is any prospect of the line being constructed at an early date, or at least that portion between Chiromo and Blantyre.


Her Majesty's Government do not think the present time opportune for undertaking this railway, and they cannot now say when the matter will be further considered, but it will not be lost sight of.
