HC Deb 29 August 1887 vol 320 c256
MR. D. CRAWFORD () (for Mr. LACAITA) () Dundee

asked the Postmaster General, Whether, seeing how few people are aware of the facilities for the despatch of letters from London to the Provinces on Sunday night by posting them at the railway stations, he will cause notices giving this information to be posted up in the receiving houses throughout the Metropolis; and, whether he will cause the same information to be clearly given in the index to the Quarterly Post Office Guide?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

, in reply, said, the arrangements for posting letters on Sundays at railway stations in London were clearly shown in the Post Office Guide, at p. 174, and also in the cheaper publication called the Post Office Handbook, which could be obtained at any post-office. As he would soon have to consider the whole question of Sunday posting in connection with the Report of the Committee, which has recently sat on the subject, he thought it better to defer for the present his reply to the second part of the hon. Member's Question.
