§ MR. WARTON
asked the Postmaster General, Whether, in fixing the scale of charges by weight, for the carriage of parcels by the parcel post, he will consider the propriety of allowing a small proportionate excess over each pound in weight in respect of the coverings in which such parcels are wrapped?
§ MR. FAWCETT
Sir, the weights for parcels were fixed in the Schedule to the Parcels Post Act passed last Session; and I do not think it would be expedient to alter them in the manner suggested by the hon. and learned Member.
