HC Deb 24 June 1919 vol 117 cc22-3
34. Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Postmaster-General when the Post Office mail tube will be in use, and whether it is proposed be bring more tubes into opera tion, in order to relieve the traffic on the streets which may be anticipated in the future?


The running tunnel has been completed, but until further progress has been made with the remainder of the work, including the electrical plant, I cannot say when the railway will be open for traffic. I do not propose to consider the construction of any further underground railways for the conveyance of mails until experience has been gained of the actual working of the railway now being constructed.
