HC Deb 19 April 1923 vol 162 cc2316-7W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that on 2nd March a Mr. Goodchild, of Strode Road, Forest Gate, handed in at Wood-grange Road post office a registered letter containing 35s.; that this envelope was not received by the person to whom it was addressed; and that the Post Office refuses to recognise responsibility as an ordinary private envelope was used; and, as the postal authorities recognised and accepted the envelope as ranking for registration and accepted the fee, will he investigate and compensate the sender, as the letter was lost whilst entrusted to the postal authorities?


I am having inquiries made and will communicate with the hon. Member.
