asked the Postmaster General, If he can state the amount collected on railway borne parcels each year since the establishment of the Parcel Post, and the amount paid to Railway Companies in respect of the carriage of such parcels?

THE POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. RAIKES) (Cambridge University)

in reply, said, the amount could be given if the right hon. Gentleman would move for a Return. The figures were too nu- merous to be given in answer to a Question.
