HC Deb 25 June 1891 vol 354 cc1428-9
MR. LLEWELLYN (Somerset, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether there is any objection to sanctioning the issue of postal orders as well as post office orders to Militiamen wishing to remit pay to their friends or families during the annual training of their corps?

*THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. E. STANHOPE,) Lincolnshire, Horncastle

The system of remittance by Post Office order was deliberately adopted as affording greater security than remittance by postal orders, which are too easily negotiable, and I think that, from that point of view, there is much to be said for the present practice.
