HC Deb 27 March 1913 vol 50 c1845W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he can see his way to allow communications from insured persons to the insurance committees to be delivered without payment of postage; and, if not, whether, seeing that inconvenience and delay has been caused by the non-acceptance of important letters by the insurance committees, he will take some further steps to remove the impression still prevalent that such communications do not require payment of postage?


With regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answers given by the Financial Secretary to the Treasury to questions on the subject asked by the hon. Member for Tewkesbury on the 31st October last, and by the hon. Member for Stratford-on-Avon on the 6th December last. With regard to the second part of the question, I am not aware that there is any widespread impression that letters addressed to insurance committees are exempt from postage.
