§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Is the Postmaster General aware that during the past ten years frequent complaints have been made of the abstraction of large numbers of newspapers, sent by people in this Country to their relatives abroad, particularly in India and Australia; whether he has heard that these newspapers are taken out and read by people on board ship; and, whether the postal authorities have ever made special efforts to discover the culprits, and with what results?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
Such complaints have on two occasions been made to the Post Office, but on investigation they have proved to be unfounded. If the hon. Member will furnish the Postmaster General with the particulars of any case of the kind which has come to his knowledge, it shall be fully investigated.
