Sir F. HALL:

81.

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the instruction he has issued to the effect that postal orders overstamped with the Irish Free State stamp are not to be honoured anywhere outside Southern Ireland is causing hardship and inconvenience to traders and others in this country; and if he will state why this step has been taken in view of the fact that no altera- tion has yet been made in the constitutional status of Southern Ireland?

No such instruction has been issued. Overprinted postal orders issued by the Post Office of the Irish Free State are payable wherever ordinary British postal orders are payable.
