§ Sir M. CONWAY
asked the Postmaster-General wheher he is aware that in telegrams the letters indicating London districts, such as S.W.2, are charged as two words; and if he will consider charging for such letters as one word?
§ Mr. HARTSHORN
Postal district numbers are not required in the addresses of telegrams, as the telegraph delivery offices do not correspond with the postal delivery offices which these numbers indicate. I do not consider it advisable therefore, to encourage the use of the numbers in telegrams by waiving the charge for their transmission.
