HC Deb 07 April 1891 vol 352 cc6-7
MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he can now state what decision has been arrived at with reference to the registration of Inland parcels, and the granting of compensation or loss or damage on registered packets; and, if so, the probable date when the same will come into operation?

THE POSTMASTER, GENERAL (Mr. RAISES, Cambridge University)

In reply to the hon. Member, I am glad to state that I have obtained the assent of the Treasury to a scheme for the registration of Inland parcels and the granting of compensation for loss or damage in respect of registered packets. The scheme will probably come into operation on the 1st June.
