HC Deb 10 December 1934 vol 296 c22
30. Mr. HALES

asked the Postmaster-General whether the regulation requiring the sender of a parcel to obtain a certificate of posting, without which compensation for the loss of a parcel will not be paid even when reliable evidence of posting can be given, is strictly enforced; and, if so, will he cause to be placed in a prominent position in parcel-receiving offices notices to this effect in order to bring this regulation before the notice of the public?


Reliable evidence of posting is accepted in lieu of a certificate of posting when compensation is claimed for the loss of a parcel, and under these circumstances I do not think that public notices of the kind suggested by my hon. Friend are required.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware that on a number of occasions it has been stated by the Department that no further claim would be considered without the production of the certificate of posting?


I am not aware of that. I only know that accommodation is made for those who desire a certificate of posting.
