THE PJSTING OF TRADE CIRCULARS IN BELGIUM. In the House of Commons, on Monday evening, Mr. M. Guest a-ked the Postmaster-General whether his attention bad been called to two letters, which appeared in The Times of the 13th and 14th of June, relative to a certaiu British Coal Company, carrying on their business in England, who by posting thtir trade cir- "Illara in Belgium at a cost of one halfpenny, thereby diminishing the Imperial revenue, which under exist- ing Conventions they were obliged, in order to obtain that low rate of postage, to print abroad and whether, in his judgment, her Majesty's Government could in. troduce some measure to prevent the recurrence of this pi actice, by which not only must the Imperial Revenue suffer, but by which the general printing trade in England might be damaged. The Marquis of Hartington My attention has been called to the proceedings of the firm in question, and it is no doubt true that under the existing Postal Con- -eption between this country and Belgium circulars can be pcsted in I -elgiuin at the rate mentioned by my hon. friend and nave to be delivered in England. In reply to the latter part of the question, I may say I do n )t think ther" is any necessity for the introduction of a measure to prevent, the recurrence of this practice, which will be most effectually checked as soon as the intended measure of the Government reducing the postage of circulars in this country to a halfpenny comes into operation. There will then be no ionger any inducement to people to send circulars abroad to be posted.
