§ MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)
To ask the Postmaster-General if he will explain why the officials at the Tain Post Office required persons calling for letters on the 7th instant to fill in a form and pay a charge of threepence before they would undertake to search the caller's box; and, seeing that a similar error was recently proved to have been made at the Cromer Post Office, will he state how these irregular charges originated and what 256 steps have been taken to prevent their recurrence.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I am having inquiry made and will communicate the result to the hon. Member.
