HC Deb 27 April 1911 vol 24 c1968

asked the Postmaster-General whether he can grant the same facilities for monthly journals, irrespective of weight, to be sent through the post for one halfpenny as are given to weekly newspapers?

The POSTMASTER-GENERAL (Mr. Herbert Samuel)

The rate fixed by the Act of 1870 at which registered newspapers printed and published in the United Kingdom at intervals of not more than seven days are conveyed through the post is un-remunerative, and I am not prepared to extend it to matter not privileged by the Act.
