HC Deb 13 May 1924 vol 173 c1180W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will further consider the claim of Mr. Ian MacDougall, particulars of which were sent to him on the 8th April, 1924, for compensation in respect of the loss of a registered packet, such loss being due to the packet not being delivered to the addressee, but to the caretaker of a block of flats?


The delivery of the registered packet in question was a good delivery under Section 90 of the Post Office Act, and I regret that there are no grounds on which I could authorise the payment of compensation in respect of the loss of the letter after delivery.
