Colonel L. WARD
asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that letters are being received from Riga although the service to Riga is suspended; and whether it would be possible to arrange that letters addressed to Riga should reach their destination?
§ Mr. PEASE
I am aware that letters from Riga are occasionally received in this country. It has hitherto been impracticable to find a suitable means for transmitting letters from the United Kingdom to Riga, but I hope to be in a position to establish a service soon; and the fact will then be announced in the ordinary way through the Press.
