§ MR. EWART
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether his attention has been called to the existence of an International system of Money orders established between Italy and France; whether there is any prospect of a similar system being established between England and France, or any other foreign country; and whether the Government of France has expressed, through their Post Office Department, its willingness to promote the establishment of such a system between France and England?
, in reply, said, he understood that an International system of money orders had been established between Italy and France, and an inquiry had taken place with regard to the establishment of a similar system between England and France. He had been told the subject was under the consideration of the Post Office authorities, and negotiations had passed between the Post Office authorities of both countries. He believed that an office had been opened by way of experiment.
