44. Dr. Russell Thomas
asked the Postmaster-General what reward was paid by his department to Mr. E. C. Jenvey, Brockenhurst, Hampshire, for handing over to the police two postal packages containing £3,700 in notes, which he found under the hedge near the church, and which were afterwards found to be part of the contents of a stolen mail bag.
The Postmaster-General (Captain Crook-shank)
The facts are not quite as stated by the hon. Member. Mr. Jenvey found and handed over to the police a mail bag containing unregistered postal packets only, for which he was paid a reward of £1. Two registered postal packets containing £3,250 in notes were recovered by the police during a search on the following day.
