HC Deb 11 March 1901 vol 90 cc1164-5

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will arrange; with the present contractors to issue the new postal orders with a counterfoil to be torn off by the senders; and whether, if the present con tractors decline to do this without extra charge, he will give an opportunity to other printers to print and supply the new postal orders at even a reduced price and with the counterfoil desired by the public.


The Postmaster General has for some time past had the question of issuing postal orders with counterfoils under his consideration, but there are many practical difficulties in the way, and he has not yet been able to arrive at a conclusion.
