§ LORD HENRY SCOTT
said, he would beg to ask the Postmaster General, Whether he has made any representation to the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty with regard to the privilege hitherto accorded to the Officers of Her Majesty's Navy while serving on Foreign Stations, which enabled them both to receive Letters from and to send Letters to their relatives and friends at a reduced rate of postage, which privilege has lately been withdrawn; and, if any representation has been so made, if he would state the grounds upon which it was made?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
replied, that there had been no communication between his Department and the Admiralty on this subject. The change referred to was made in consequence of a decision of the Treasury. If the noble Lord desired further information on the subject, he should be happy to afford it.
