§ MR. HENNIKER HEATON (Canterbury)
asked the Secretary to the Treasury, Why the halfpenny Post Cards cost more than a halfpenny each, while the penny Post Cards are sold at one penny each?
§ THE SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HENRY H. FOWLER) (Wolverhampton, E.)
In answer to the hon. Member's Question, I have to state that as regards Inland Post Cards, the extra amount charged is only sufficient to recoup the State for the cost of material, custody, and distribution. The price of the Foreign Cards is fixed at 1d. (10 centimes) by the Postal Union Convention.
