HC Deb 18 February 1914 vol 58 cc947-8
51. Mr. FALLE

asked if the Post Office claims the right of delivering any kind of registered letter by merely placing it in the house letter-box without the registered letter being signed for?


The hon. Member's question is understood to refer to a Parliamentary Notice of Objection. Such notices are dealt with under special regulations. It is the rule to obtain a receipt on delivery, if possible, but where a notice cannot be delivered either to the addressee or to some person on his behalf, it is placed in the letter-box at the address, if there is one.
