§ MR. EDWARD BARRY (Cork Co., S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster-General, whether the cost of the postage of circulars is the same in Bandon and Clone; and, if not, will steps be taken to make the cost identical in both places.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HANBURY,) Preston
Circulars which conform to the Book Post Regulations are transmissible at the halfpenny rate of postage throughout the United Kingdom. If a higher rate has been charged at either of the places mentioned this must have been due to some misunderstanding, and the Postmaster-General will be obliged if the hon. Member will furnish him with particulars.
