HC Deb 15 April 1889 vol 335 c488

asked the Postmaster General whether his attention has been called to the inconvenience arising from the present regulations with reference to letters addressed "poste restante" in the London district; and whether he will consider some modification in the system sow existing?


The "Poste Resante" system in London has hitherto been confined to the offices at St. Martin's-le-Grand and Charing Cross, but since the receipt of a complaint, forwarded to me some weeks ago by my hon. Friend, I have been considering whether facilities for obtaining callers' letters should be given at a larger number of offices in the Metropolis, and I hope very shortly to put in operation an experimental extension which, I trust, will be satisfactory.
