HC Deb 16 July 1929 vol 230 cc245-6W

asked the Postmaster-General if he will take steps to stop the use of the dangerous metal fasteners on envelopes now passing through the post to the injury of postal servants?


The use of "dangerous" metal fasteners on envelopes is, as indicated at page 12 of the Post Office Guide, prohibited by the postal regulations. Instructions are in force for any packets so secured to be detained if observed in the post, and the matter taken up with the sender.
