HC Deb 08 June 1888 vol 326 c1526

(for Mr. AINSLIE) (Lancashire, N., Lonsdale) asked the Postmaster General, If, in view of recent cases of misappropriation of money by country postmen, he can arrange that such postmen shall carry a ticket book containing forms for obtaining postal orders of every kind, such book to be examined daily at the office where such orders are obtained?

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

In reply to the hon. Member, I have to state that an arrangement of a nature similar to that proposed has been under my consideration for some time, and that I hope soon to be in a position to come to a decision.
