HC Deb 08 May 1888 vol 325 cc1607-8
MR. BURDETT-COUTTS (Westminster)

asked the Postmaster General, Whether there is any particular reason why the paper used for foreign telegraph forms should be of such a quality that it is impossible to write on it without impediment from its fibrous and flimsy composition; and, whether he will order a better kind of paper to be supplied for this purpose in the future?

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

A better kind of paper for the foreign telegraph form was introduced some time ago, and I have received from the public several expressions of satisfaction with the improvement. Possibly the form of which the hon. Member complains was one of the old issue.
