HC Deb 20 January 1942 vol 377 c231W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that some post offices are refusing to accept parcels with stuck-on labels; and what is the exact nature of the instructions issued on this point by his Department?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

An instruction was issued to all post offices in November, 1941, that parcels or packets addressed by means of labels should not for the time being at any rate be refused because of a possible infringement of the Control of Paper (No. 36) Order, 1941. I am not aware of any post office having refused parcels with stuck-on labels, but if my hon. Friend will give me particulars of any such cases, I shall be glad to have inquiry made.
