HC Deb 06 June 1919 vol 116 cc2440-1W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will make inquiries as to the loss of a money order (No. 7,002) for, £35, obtained at the post office, Kennington Road, S.E., on 10th February, 1919, and telegraphed to Driver R. W. Tallett, then stationed in France, on that day; if he is aware that, though there has been considerable correspondence (T. O. 16,924 T.) with the money order office of the General Post Office, the amount is still unrefunded, and if he will take steps to see that without further delay the sum is returned to the sender?


The telegraph money order referred to by the hon. Member was duly advised abroad on the day of issue, and I am at present unable to state the reason for its non-payment to the payee. It is necessary to obtain the authority of the French Post Office before repayment of the order to the remitter can be effected, and the office is being pressed to give the requisite authority without loss of time and to ascertain the reason for the non-payment of the order.
