§ MR. HOWELL
I beg to ask the Postmaster General whether he is aware that the Post Office authorities at Dunedin, in New Zealand, refuse to accept money as investment in the Post Office Savings Banks belonging to the Trades Unions registered in this country, either in the corporate name of the Union or in the names of the trustees; aud whether he can arrange with the Colonial Office to afford to the branches of Trades Unions in the Colonies the same rights and privileges as regards the Post Office Savings Banks as they enjoy, and have long enjoyed, in this country?
§ THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. ARNOLD MORLEY, Nottingham, E.)
The New- Zealand Post Office being quite independent of the British Post Office, I have no information as to the matter to which the hon. Member refers, but it appears to be one for the consideration of the Colonial Legislatures.
