HC Deb 05 May 1898 vol 57 c407

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether, under the existing postal regulations, the Clerk of the House of Commons is not entitled to receive correspondence on public business free of postage; whether letters addressed to the Speaker's Secretary and the Clerk of Parliaments, on public business, need not be stamped; whether the same privilege is extended to the Vote Office and the Sale Office of the House of Commons, and to all public Departments; and whether the regulations will be so altered as to enable Members and others to address letters to the Clerk of the House of Commons on public business without payment of postage?


There is no objection to altering the regulation, as suggested by the honourable Member.
