HC Deb 26 June 1883 vol 280 c1554

asked the Postmaster General, Whether, in the interests of emigrants and others who desire to transmit small sums of money either to or from this Country to the Colonies, he would take into his consideration the desirability of extending the Postal Order system to the Colonies, or of lessening the cost of Post Office Orders?


In reply to the hon. Member I am glad to be able to state that a Bill is being prepared, which I hope shortly to introduce, to authorize negotiations being entered into with the various Colonies for the extension of the Postal Order system to them.
