HC Deb 06 November 1911 vol 30 c1265

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in accordance with the practice of most Governments, he will consider the question of granting free postal delivery to Members of Parliament on all letters relating to public matters?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

Any Parliamentary privilege of sending or receiving letters by post free of postage was determined by a Statute of 1840. I do not contemplate introducing legislation to repeal or amend that Act.
