HC Deb 23 March 1891 vol 351 cc1667-8
MR. LLOYD MORGAN (Carmarthen, W.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that the Corps of the Commissionaires receive and take in letters, for delivery by express messengers, at their office in the Strand, precisely in the same way as the Boy Messengers' Company does; and whether he will state the grounds on which he proposes to differentiate his action under the Post Office Acts between these two useful organisations?


I am not aware that the Corps of the Commissionaires receives and takes in letters at its office in the Strand in the mode stated by the hon. Member. The Corps of the Commissionaires has no resemblance in organisation or objects to a company organised for profit, such as that of the Boy Messengers.
