HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 cc1494-5W

asked the Postmaster-General if his Department have considered and decided what Regulations they will issue as regards election matter cent through the post in view of a General Election; if any decision has been come to as regards the size of the post packet that will be delivered free under the new Act; and if there will be any restrictions on the ordinary circular postage for election purposes?


asked the Postmaster-General what arrangements he is making for the dispatch of candidates' addresses at a General Election; if he will issue full particulars as to the dimensions and weight; and what facilities are being made for posting to the absent voters?


I have approved Regulations, which will be published in a few days, regarding the communications which candidates are entitled under Section 33 of the Representation of the People Act to send without payment of postage. The ordinary postal regulations will apply to any other communications sent by candidates.
