I have no reason for thinking that the practice to which the hon. Member refers is prevalent at the present time, but, if he will be good enough to supply me with particulars of any cases he may have in mind, I shall be glad to inquire into them. I may add that I have ample powers for dealing with the practice when in my opinion the object is to evade payment of inland postage.
