HC Deb 09 March 1936 vol 309 cc1819-20W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the registered telegraphic address for the House of Commons is Commons wire London, and that the word wire is not charged for in such telegrams; if he can see his way to eliminate the word wire from telegrams so as to avoid confusion in the office of origin of the telegram; and will he consult with the authority concerned as to the possibility of stamping the telegraphic address on future stationery issues for the use of Members in the Libraries?


I find that the word "wire" can be omitted without causing inconvenience, and I have arranged that the telegraphic address of the House of Commons should now be "Commons, London." I will consult the authority concerned with regard to showing the address on future supplies of stationery.
