HC Deb 16 June 1892 vol 5 c1266
MR. H. GARDNER (Essex, Saffron Walden)

I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether, under the new regulations as to re-addressed letters, all such letters, if not re-posted within twenty-four hours of arrival, are subject to an extra charge of twopence each instead of one penny, as under the old arrangement; and whether, as many persons, such as commercial travellers, &c., are prejudiced instead of benefited thereby, he will consider the desirability of a further alteration in the arrangement?


The extra charge would only be made if such letters were not prepaid; but the arrangement seems liable to cause inconvenience in certain cases, and I propose to amend it, so that a single fee only shall be charged.
