HC Deb 10 March 1891 vol 351 cc583-4

I beg to ask the Postmaster General if he will 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.


I beg to give notice that I will move a Resolution on the subject.
