HC Deb 19 November 1919 vol 121 cc955-6W
Captain BROWN

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the fact that the special reasons which necessitated the imposition of a 3d. fee for each inquiry for letters on Sunday mornings at the Corbridge-on-Tyne post office no longer exist, this surcharge can now be abolished?


The charge of a search fee of 3d. to callers for letters on Sundays at the Corbridge-on-Tyne post office was rendered necessary by the congestion which occurred in the office when no fee was charged. I am about to offer to the parish council, who have made representations on the subject, the introduction of a house to house delivery by postmen on Sundays, if the council pass a formal resolution requesting its institution and furnish an assurance that the resolution represents the substantially unanimoun desire of the inhabitants.
