§ Sir P. RICHARDSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether he will authorise local postmasters to deliver letters and parcels addressed to Parliamentary candidates and election agent* on Sundays, upon their application at the post office during the period of an election?
§ Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
The delivery of letters and parcels on Sunday, either from house to house or to callers at the post office, has been wholly discontinued. I regret that I cannot make any exception in the case of correspondence addressed to Parliamentary candidates or their agents, as it would necessitate opening, specially the offices concerned, on Sunday morning and sorting the whole of the mails on hand.
