HC Deb 18 February 1914 vol 58 c935
28. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether the Government of India and the Secretary of State propose to take any and, if so, what action in order to the acceleration, or other improvement, of the mails between India and the United Kingdom?


Drafts of tender forms are being drawn up by the Postmaster-General in communication with the Secretary of State and the Government of India, with the object of inviting tenders for alternative forms of an accelerated or otherwise improved mail service between this country and India. The ultimate decision will of course largely turn on considerations of cost.
