HC Deb 28 July 1908 vol 193 cc1237-8
MR. McHUGH (Sligo, N.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been drawn to a resolution recently adopted by the Canadian Government endorsing the resolution of the Colonial Conference in reference to an All-Red Route; has His Majesty's Government concluded its negotiations with the Governments of Canada, New Zealand, and Australia as to subsidising the proposed All-Red Route; is he aware that all sections of Irish Parliamentary representatives are in favour of including Ireland in the proposed scheme, and will lie state what is the present position in regard to negotiations with Colonial Governments; and what are the intentions of His Majesty's Government in reference to this matter.


I have been asked by my right hon. friend to reply to this Question. My attention has been called to reports of the resolution referred to, but I am not in a position to add anything to the statements which have been already made to the House by the Prime Minister and other Members of His Majesty's Government.
