§ SIR MATTHEW WHITE RIDLEY
asked the Postmaster General, If he has considered the necessity which will arise, should his scheme for a parcels post be carried out, for the provision of riding or driving, instead of walking, postmen, especially in rural districts where the distances are great; and, whether such a provision will form a portion of his scheme?
§ MR FAWCETT
Sir, in reply to the hon. Baronet, I have to state that the introduction of a parcels post will, in many instances, render it necessary to employ riding or driving postmen instead of foot postmen.
§ COLONEL MAKINS
asked, whether it would be in the power of persons sending parcels to register them in the same way that letters were registered?
