HC Deb 17 March 1905 vol 143 cc331-2
MR. MARSHALL HALL (Lancashire, Southport)

To ask the Postmaster- General if he will consider the possibility of making, and, if practicable, make regulations to prevent the Post Office being made the medium of distribution for letters, circulars, and other communications from money lenders or their agents offering to make advances of cash to the addressees of such letters, circulars, or communications.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) I regret I have, up to now, been able to find no means by which I can stop a practice which I much deplore and would willingly stop.
