HC Deb 01 August 1889 vol 339 c70
MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that a printed placard, announcing that a Primrose and Conservative demonstration will take place at Husbands Bosworth on 8th August, at which there there will be addresses from two Conservative Members of this House, dancing, a dinner, a donkey race, and other similar amusements, is exhibited in a prominent position in the post office at Market Harborough; and whether he will issue orders forbidding such placards to be exhibited in post offices in future, and will see that this particular placard is forthwith taken down?


I have given directions that the placard in question, if exhibited in the Market Harborough post office, is to be taken down at once, and a notice will be issued forbidding the exhibition of such notices in post offices.
