§ COLONEL STOPFORD-SACKVILLE (Northamptonshire, N.)
I beg to ask the President of the Local Government Board whether, in view of the general ignorance prevailing among parish councils as to their powers under the Post Office Amendment Act, 1895, and the Post Office (Guarantee) Act, 1898, he will be willing to issue to them a circular conveying to them anew in plain language the explanation of these Acts, as was attempted to be done in the circular letter of 3rd September, 1898.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. WALTER LONG, Bristol, S.)
I will give consideration to the suggestion of my hon. and gallant friend.
