HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 c824

asked the Postmaster-General whether it is the practice at Navan post office when people whose business occasionally calls them away by a train leaving before their morning letters would be delivered at their residence in the ordinary way, and who call at the post office for them, to be charged a fee of 3d.; and, if so, whether he will abolish this charge?


It is the rule throughout the country to charge a fee of 3d. to any person who calls at a post office for letters received by a mail in connection with which there is a delivery at the applicant's residence, and I do not see my way, in view of the labour involved in compliance with such requests, to abolish the fee.
