Report No. 38
40. Section 7 and petitions to President, Parliament, etc.-
Under the English Act,1 there is an exemption from postage in respect of petitions to the Queen, Parliament, etc. (provided the conditions mentioned in the section are fulfilled). We considered the question whether the adoption of such a provision would be desirable. We decided not to recommend any such change, as the exemption might be found to be unworkable, in practice.
1. Section 5(1), proviso, English Act.
