§ The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Illingworth)
As I have previously explained to the hon. Member, the whole question is a very complicated one. Progress in negotiations is being made as expeditiously as possible; but it may be assumed that it will be impracticable to -commence building operations during the War.
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
It depends how long the War lasts. I do not think it is possible at all to make a commencement while the War lasts.
