asked the Postmaster-General if he is aware that during the past five years there have been frequent cases of letters meant for Perth, Scotland, being sent to Perth, Australia; and if he will issue instructions that all letters addressed simply to Perth shall be sent in the first place to Scotland?

I am aware that letters intended for Perth, Scotland, are occasionally sent to Perth, Western Australia, by mistake, but the standing instructions already provide that letters addressed to Perth only, without the name of a country, should be sent to Perth, Scotland, in the first instance. I will consider if any further steps are necessary in the matter.
