HC Deb 24 July 1916 vol 84 c1327
67. Major HUNT

asked the Postmaster-General whether stamped envelopes and other articles sold by the Post Office are still supplied at pre-war prices; and, if not, are the prices charged commensurate with the increases in the cost of materials?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. I am looking closely into the cost of production. As soon as I have the full facts in front of me I shall be in a position to decide whether any action is necessary.

Major HUNT

Does it not strike the right hon. Gentleman that unless the prices are complete it is very unfair?


I think that is probably a fallacy. However, I am looking into the whole question, and will take steps to decide it at as early a date as I possibly can.
