36. Mr. DAVID ADAMS
asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the increasing interest taken by citizens generally in public questions resulting in considerably augmented correspondence with this House, he will consider the desirability of franking those letters of Members devoted to public business?
§ Sir W. WOMERSLEY
The hon. Member's proposal would revive in a modified form the system of franking which was abolished by the Act of 1840, and I see serious objections to its adoption.
