§ SIR THOMAS DEWAR
To ask the Postmaster-General if he will state what progress has been made with the underground telegraph cable to the North.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) The cable is complete as far as Carlisle; the pipes are all laid between Carlisle and Glasgow; and the cable for these pipes has been ordered, and will be drawn in during the present year. The underground line from London to Glasgow will then be complete.
