§ MR. SAMUEL YOUNG (Cavan, E.)
To ask the Postmaster-General whether the Department undertakes to redirect letters to travellers on business or pleasure on receiving notice; or whether the practice is confined to householders.
(Answered by Lord Stanley.) The Post Office does not undertake the redirection of correspondence for a person temporarily leaving home, with whatever object and whether a householder or not, unless the house be left uninhabited, not, as a general rule, in any case where private redirection can be arranged. The regulations on the subject will be found at page 22 of the Post Office Guide. If the hon. Member has any specific case in view and will be good enough to give me particulars, I will have inquiry made.
