1. The commission payable in respect of a money order issued under the Post Office (Money Orders) Act, 1880, as amended by any subsequent Act, and presented for payment at any time after the expiration of three months from the last day of the month of issue, shall in all cases be an amount equal to that of the original poundage, and accordingly proviso (3) to section one of the Post Office (Money Orders) Act, 1880, shall be repealed from 'with the addition' to the end of the proviso.

The Treasury may by warrant under the Post Office Acts, 1837 to 1903, regulate the use, by way of prepayment of postage, of embossed or impressed stamps cut out or otherwise separated from the cover or other paper, card, or thing on which the stamp was embossed or impressed, and section nineteen of the Post Office Act, 1870, which prohibits such use of such stamps, shall be repealed.

3. This Act may be cited as the Post Office Act, 1904, and may be cited with the Post Office Acts, 1837 to 1903, and so far as it relates to money orders may also be cited with the Post Office (Money Orders) Acts, 1848 to 1903.
