HC Deb 03 April 1903 vol 120 c1025
LIEUT-COL. PRYCE-JONES (Montgomery Boroughs)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been directed to the fact that orders by post requiring only the halfpenny postage are erroneously overcharged as letters; and, if so, will he consider the desirability of amending the regulations to obviate such inconvenience to the trading public.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) I do not know to what case the hon. and gallant Member refers, but if he will be good enough to furnish me with particulars I will have inquiry made. The question of revising the existing regulation of the halfpenny post is now occupying my attention.
