HC Deb 17 June 1920 vol 130 cc1474-5W

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware of the difficulty, expense, and delay caused to Liverpool traders and other Liverpool people by the inadequacy of the present stamping facilities at Liverpool, causing constantly larger quantities of documents and forms to be sent to Manchester, and often by special messenger, such as bills of lading, marine and fire insurance policies, dividend warrants, letters of allotment, contracts, conveyances, etc.; and whether the Department will make suitable arrangements to remedy what is complained of?


I am not aware that any ground for complaint exists, but if my hon. Friend will be good enough to furnish particulars of any specific case of delay or difficulty, I will at once have the matter inquired into.
