§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that there is a general demand for an international, or at least for an Imperial, postage stamp; whether, in the absence of such a stamp: he will set apart one of the rooms in the new General Post Office, and also a room in each of the more important post offices of Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast, and other large towns, where the postage stamps of the Colonies of the Empire may be purchased, in order to give facilities to the public to send stamped envelopes or covers for replies; and, whether he is aware that British postage stamps are sold in several Australian post offices?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREA-SURY (Mr. R. W. HANBURY,) Preston
I beg leave to refer the hon. Member to the answer given to a Question, word for word the same, asked by him as recently as the 22nd August last.
§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON
Arising out of that answer, may I ask whether the hon. Gentleman is aware that the late Postmaster General asked me to repeat the Question, and apologised for not having given the matter due consideration?
