HC Deb 08 June 1899 vol 72 c659
MR. BILL (Staffordshire, Leek)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, whether the attention of the Postmaster-General has been called to the mandatposte system, for the transmission of money by post, which has been for many years in operation with great success in Switzerland and Germany; and whether he will consider whether it would be desirable to give the system a trial in this country.


The question whether it is desirable to introduce into this country the money-card system in operation in some Continental countries is under the consideration of the Postmaster-General, and it is not possible at present to make any definite announcement on the subject.
