HC Deb 28 November 1933 vol 283 cc709-10W

asked the Postmaster-General whether be is aware that the claim for compensation made against the Post Office under Reference No. 55,267/33 by the Electricity Installation and Equipment Company, Tindall Street, Chelmsford, has been refused; whether he is aware that in this case compensation was claimed because a Post Office servant acted, as his office acknowledges, without proper authority, with resulting loss and inconvenience to the business of the firm; and whether, under these special circumstances, he will reconsider this claim?


As was explained to my hon. and gallant Friend in the letter sent to him on 5th October, compensation is in no circumstances paid for injury or damage consequential upon the nondelivery or mis-delivery of anything sent by post; and I am sorry that I cannot make any exception in the present case.
