§ SIR JOHN R. MOWBRAY (for Mr. RAIKES)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, If he can now state the statutory provisions of any Act or Acts of Parliament relied upon by the Post Office Authorities to justify their interference with the employment of college messengers by the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge to deliver private notes in the town from members of those colleges?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER)
the statute in question is 1 Vict. c. 33. I may say that there is every reason to believe that the arrangement referred to in my answer of the 25th ultimo will work satisfactorily, and I may add that 1906 there is no desire on the part of the Post Office to interfere with the legitimate employment by the College authorities of messengers to carry private notes, so long as the provisions of that Act are not infringed.
