§ MR. ATKINSON (Boston)
asked the Postmaster General by whose authority letters to Members of the House redirected to addresses out of the London postal district are charged again, while those addressed to other places are delivered free; and whether he will cause such unequal treatment of Members of Parliament to cease?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES,) Cambridge University
Redirected letters for Members of Parliament are not differently treated from those for other persons, but are liable on re-direction to additional charge, unless both the original and the second address are within the delivery of the same post office. The London Postal District is considered as being within the delivery of the same post office, and letters redirected from one part of London to another are, therefore, exempt from charge, while letters re-directed from 953 any part of London to the provinces are liable.
