HC Deb 13 May 1901 vol 93 c1466

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if the mails carried by the "Tantallon Castle" have been saved.


The "Tantallon Castle" was conveying the mails for South Africa despatched from this country on the 20th of April. According to the latest information which the Postmaster General has been able to obtain all the bags containing letters have been saved and landed at Cape Town; but a small portion of the parcel mail and of the bags containing printed matter are still on board. Of these no details can be given. It is understood that every effort will be made to continue salvage operations.
