§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Has the Postmaster General any objection to open up communication with the Australasian Governments, with the view of establishing a system of penny postcards between England and these Colonies?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER)
There is a financial objection to the proposal of the hon. Member, which would affect not only the Imperial Exchequer, but also the Australian Colonies; and, having regard to the serious loss already sustained by that Postal Service, the Postmaster General is not prepared to take up the subject under present circumstances.
