HC Deb 17 February 1908 vol 184 cc455-6

I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that, under a Post Office regulation made nearly a month ago, applying to the district of Drumcollogher, in the county of Limerick, when the postman failed to deliver letters or parcels owing to the house of addressees being closed, a charge of 3d. was made on each letter or parcel when called for at the post office; whether he is also aware that a number of persons had to pay this tax; and whether, having regard to the fact that this regulation was made under a misapprehension and has now been discontinued, he will take steps to see that the money paid will be refunded.


I wrote to the hon. Member on the 14th instant to inform him that instructions have been given for the amounts in question to be refunded.
