HC Deb 25 May 1905 vol 146 c1376
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he has yet arrived at a decision in regard to the general question of the delivery of letters to callers on public holidays.

(Answered by Lord Stanley.) Yes, and I have issued instructions that on bank holidays, and on public holidays in Scotland observed by the Department in the same way as bank holidays, persons who are not private box renters or entitled to use the poste restante may, on payment of a special fee of 3d., obtain at the counter of offices open to the public on those days any correspondence addressed to them which may be available and readily accessible at the time of calling. The arrangement will be duly notified in the next issue of the Post Office Guide.
