HC Deb 30 May 1918 vol 106 c967

asked the Postmaster-General whether the maximum size allowed for postcards will be increased so as to allow of their being used more largely for correspondence at the penny rate?


As promised, my right hon. Friend has considered the question whether the maximum size of postcards might be increased. The present limit, namely, 5½in. by 3½in., appears to allow ample space for a short letter, especially as the left-hand half of the address side can be used for the purpose as well as the back of the card, and, in view of the loss of revenue involved, he does not see his way to increase the size of postcards.
