§ 25. Mr. Woodburn
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is prepared to institute some efficient and secure method for families desiring to send re mittances to their relatives serving in the Forces, in view of the general instruction not to send money through the post, the decision to regard postal orders as legal tender, and the reluctance of people to include remittances in soldiers' parcels of which the contents must be detailed on the outside covering?
§ The Secretary of State for War (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
Remittances not exceeding £22s. on any one day may be sent to a member of the British Expeditionary Force by means of postal orders. So long as these are legal tender, they must be sent by registered post if senders desire to claim compensation in the event of loss. Postal orders should not be enclosed in parcels.
