§ Captain BULLOCK
asked the Postmaster-General what postal facilities exist for sending letters to Tristan da Cunha; and whether it is possible to improve them?
§ Viscount WOLMER
As my hon. and gallant Friend is no doubt aware, there is no regular communication with the island. A call was arranged in January of last year by the Royal Research Ship "Discovery" and another in March of this year by the Steamship "Suveric." Mails were sent to the island on both these occasions, and I understand that it is hoped with the co-operation of the steamship companies to arrange a yearly call in future.
