HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c391
MR. A. ROCHE (Cork)

To ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that in the public lobby in the General 'Post Office, Cork, a poster is displayed setting forth the alleged attractions of Canada and other Colonies, for intending emigrants; will he say if this publication is allowed with the sanction of the postal authorities; and, seeing that all classes of earnest Irishmen are engaged in an endeavour to limit the tide of emigration, will he issue instructions immediately that posters of this kind, which often contain misleading statements, shall be removed from the Irish post offices.

(Answered by Mr. Sydney Buxton.) Notices of the kind referred to have been exhibited at all post offices for many years at the request of the Colonial Office, to whom any complaint in regard to the statements therein contained should be addressed.
