HC Deb 14 March 1904 vol 131 c974
MR. LONSDALE (Armagh, Mid.)

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he has received representations from local authorities and others that the introduction of a cash-on-delivery post by the postal authorities would inflict injury on traders and shopkeepers in country towns and villages; and, if so, whether he can now give an assurance that it is not intended to proceed further with the scheme.

*THE POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Lord STANLEY,) Lancashire, Westhoughton

I have nothing to add at present to the reply which I gave on 22nd February to a Question asked on this subject by the hon. Member for North Tyrone.†
