Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he has any information that letters arriving in Dublin from Belfast with British stamps on them are surcharged the amount of postage; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take in the matter?
I have been asked to answer this question. No such information has reached me, but if my hon. and gallant Friend will supply me with specific cases, I will have inquiry made.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in the case of letters posted in Londonderry with the Irish Free State stamps on them, the recipients in this country are surcharged for them?
I have not heard of such a case. I will inquire.
