§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he is aware that receivers of post cards sent from this country are frequently lined three pence, because the words "Post Card" are written and not printed on the address side; and whether he will instruct our representatives attending the Postal Union Congress at Washington to have the practice relaxed so as to abolish this rule, and also the one which forbids the use of the Royal Arms on post cards sent to our colonies or to foreign countries?
§ MR. HANBURY
The Postmaster General is aware that receivers of post cards in this country are fined because the words "post card" are written and 628 not printed on the address side; but, judging from the complaints which are received, such cases are comparatively rare. Various proposals in regard to post cards will be discussed at the Postal Congress at Washington, and the British delegates have been instructed to take up a liberal attitude on these proposals as towards the public.
