HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 c25
Mr. BARRIE (on behalf of Mr. Lonsdale)

asked the Postmaster General whether complaint had been made to the General Post Office in Dublin that in January last a letter addressed to Mrs. Robb, of Drumhoney House, Whitecross, county Armagh, was returned to the sender as being insufficiently addressed; whether the official reply was that as correspondence addressed Mrs. Robb, Drumhoney House, Whitecross, county Armagh, was claimed by both Mrs. W. J. Robb and Mrs. James Robb, it must be treated as undeliverable in the absence of anything on the outside of the postal packets to indicate for which of these persons they were intended whether that explanation accorded with the general practice of the Post Office; and whether he would cause special inquiry to be made into the nature of the business carried on by the postmaster at Whitecross and the manner in which the postal business was transacted in that place?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Sydney Buxton)

I am making inquiry on the subject, and will send the hon. Member a reply.
