HC Deb 07 May 1896 vol 40 c737
MR. G. W. WOLFF (Belfast, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether anyone keeping a sub-post office is prohibited from carrying on the business of rent collector; and, if so, would he explain the matter?


There is no written rule on the subject, but it is not considered desirable that a Post Office servant should hold an appointment such as collector of rents which may bring him into unpleasant relations with members of the public and take him frequently away from the office.


asked the right hon. Gentleman whether the matter depended entirely upon the view which the Postmaster General took of it?


No, Sir.
