HC Deb 27 November 1912 vol 44 c1305W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will consider the advisability of allowing free postage and telegrams to Members when on duty in the House of Commons from the House post office only?


As regards letters, I beg to refer the hon. Member to my reply to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for North Leitrim on 6th November, 1911. With regard to telegrams, the existing law contains no authority for permitting their transmission by Members of the House of Commons free of charge. I do not contemplate introducing legislation in the matter.
