§ MR. ATKINSON (Boston)
I beg to ask the Postmaster General if he will 584 give the same privilege in future to Britons as to re-addressing of letters, &c, which he now gives to foreigners?
§ *THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES,) Cambridge University
Letters transmitted by post between countries of the Postal Union are exempt from charge for re-direction under the Regulations of the Postal Union Convention. The hon. Member must be aware that the Postmaster General has no authority or power to remit charges producing revenue without the sanction of the Treasury.
