asked whether it was the rule that postage was not to be refunded in the case of non-delivery of packages, even though the non-delivery was admittedly the fault of the Post Office?
§ Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
As the hon. Member speaks of "packages," he probably has parcels chiefly in mind. When the Post Office is satisfied that a parcel has been lost in the post it pays compensation (subject, of course, to the conditions set out in the Post Office Guide), and refunds postage.
