HC Deb 30 May 1881 vol 261 c1662

asked the Postmaster General, Whether, in making his arrangements for the introduction of the Parcel Post, he will consider if it is practicable to connect with it the system, as followed in Germany, whereby the Post Office undertakes to collect, on account of the sender, the amount stated in an invoice accompanying the parcel, before giving delivery of the goods?


in reply, said, that, after giving the subject careful consideration, he regretted to find that there were serious difficulties in the way of such a scheme as was suggested in the Question of the hon. Member.
