Compulsory Registration. — When an uninsured
parcel in course of transit to or from those countries
(foreign or colonial) is discovered to contain coin,
watches, jewellery, or any article of gold or silver, it
is compult^orily registered, and a fee of 8d. is charged
against the sender or addressee, as the case may be.
■ Packing. — More careful and substantial packing
is necessary for all foreign and colonial parcels than
for inland parcels, owing to the much greater distance
over wliich, as a rule, the former have to be conveyed,
the very different conditions of transit, and the in-
fluence of climate. This is a consideration which
must necessarily be taken into account in dealing
with claims for compensation. Further, a parcel for
any foreign country must be so sealed by the sender
that the parcel cannot be opened without the seals
being broken.
Frohibited Articles. — As in the case of the inland
parcel post, certain dangerous and perishable articles
and contraband articles must not be sent by means
of the foreiga and colonial parcel post. Liquids may
l)e accepted if securely packed ia proper cases.
General. — Where not repugnant to the foregoing
rules, the general regulations of the inland parcel
post will apply.
