HC Deb 15 March 1887 vol 312 c378

asked the Postmaster General, Whether his attention had been drawn to the great advantage to be derived from marking the points of the compass on the tops of street pillar-boxes, in order to assist strangers to find their way in dark and foggy weather?

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

The suggestion of the hon. Member seems to be interesting and ingenious;and I shall be happy to take the advice of my Department on the subject.
