§ MR. ANDERSON
asked the Post-master General, If he is aware that the recent order on the subject of Telegraph Stamps is much disliked by the mercantile community, and if he will explain the necessity which has led to the change, and say whether he intends the order to be strictly interpreted and enforced?
§ LORD JOHN MANNERS
, in reply, said, he was not aware that the order in question had occasioned any inconvenience to the mercantile community. The change that had been adopted was an economical one, and he hoped that by means of it many thousands a year would be saved in salaries throughout the Kingdom. In order to produce that result, it would be necessary that the order should be strictly enforced.
