HC Deb 17 July 1871 vol 207 c1871

asked the Postmaster General. Whether he sees any objection to entrusting the Postmaster at the House of Commons with the duty of stamping (on payment) all letters posted there with an official stamp, as is done at Government offices, without putting Members to the trouble of placing stamps upon them?


, in reply, said, he had given directions to the Postmaster of the House of Commons, when letters were handed in with money sufficient to pay for them, that he should himself put a stamp on them. That would probably meet the object which the hon. Gentleman had in view, and it would at all times give him great pleasure to carry out the wishes of hon. Members by endeavouring to carry out any plan which they might think conducive to their convenience.
