HC Deb 10 June 1902 vol 109 c235

To ask the President of the Board of Agriculture whether he will consider the possibility of sending out his departmental leaflets unsealed instead of in closed envelopes, thereby effecting a considerable economy.

(Answer.) If the leaflets were sent in open envelopes they would be more likely to be lost, or be treated as circulars often are and thrown away. It costs the Post Office no more to deliver a sealed than an open envelope.—(Board of Agriculture.)
