HC Deb 01 February 1900 vol 78 c287

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether more than fourteen years have elapsed since negotiations commenced with a view to establishing parcel post between England and the United States; whether he is aware that there is a parcel post arrangement between the United States and several British colonies; and whether a parcel post has been established between Germany and the United States.


The answer to all three paragraphs of the hon. Member's question is in the affirmative. Renewed proposals for a parcel post with this country have recently been made to the United States Post Office, and the Postmaster General hopes soon to receive a favourable reply.
