HC Deb 22 February 1897 vol 46 c872
COLONEL MILWARD (Warwick, Stratford-upon-Avon)

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Postmaster General, what is the average distance or the approximate average distance that parcels are conveyed by the Inland Parcels Post of Great Britain and Ireland?


The Postmaster General has no precise information as to the average distance over which inland parcels are conveyed. It has never been considered necessary to obtain this information, and it would involve much trouble and expense to do so.
