HC Deb 01 April 1909 vol 3 c482
Mr. WALTER GUINNESS (on behalf of Sir Gilbert Parker)

asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether there is an arrangement with the Elder Dempster Steamship Company to call at Bermuda en route to Jamaica; how often the vessels of this line call at Bermuda; and whether there is any intention to make the service a fortnightly one both ways, as in the case of Jamaica?

The UNDER-SECRETARY for the COLONIES (Colonel Seely)

At present the, s.s. "Port Kingston" calls at Bermuda every six weeks on her outward voyage to Jamaica; and the Secretary of State hopes that arrangements may soon be made for this vessel to call similarly at Bermuda on the return voyage; but there is no present intention of arranging for a fortnightly direct service to and from Bermuda.
