§ SIR WILLIAM HOLLAND (Yorkshire, W.R., Rotherham)
I beg to ask the postmaster-General whether he has been in communication with the Canadian Government on the question of the Atlantic cable rates, with a view to their possible reduction.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
Advantage has been taken of the presence in England of Mr. Lemieux (the Postmaster-General of Canada) to discuss the question of Atlantic Cable Rates. We have arranged that representatives of the British and Canadian Governments should meet here in the spring to consider the subject.
