§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, whether he will consider, during the recess, the question of allowing the name and address not exceeding eight words to be transmitted free of charge in telegrams.
§ MR. HANBURY
No, Sir; the question of allowing a certain number of words in the address of a telegram to go free has been fully considered, and the Postmaster General can hold out no hope 742 that he will be able to do what the hon. Member suggests.
