HC Deb 17 April 1890 vol 343 c681
MR. ROWNTREE (Scarborough)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General if any steps are being taken to bring about the establishment of a Parcel Post between Great Britain and the United States?


Yes, Sir. For several years active steps have been taken to bring about a Parcel Post with the United States, but hitherto without success. Negotiations, however, have recently been renewed, and I am not without hope of a satisfactory result.
