HC Deb 11 April 1922 vol 153 c221

asked the Postmaster-General the approximate extra cost, in addition to the cost of the ordinary daily post delivery, of the distribution of a candidate's election address, or other election propaganda, to 25,000 voters in one district, in envelopes directed from the voting lists and de livered to the post office in separate packets for each street, and in numerical order; whether such extra cost would amount to as much as £10, as compared with the present postage charge of more than £100; and will he consider the advisability of charging rates for this special service compatible with the cost of a house-to-house delivery, privately undertaken?


In view of the different conditions prevailing in different areas, I doubt if any estimate of cost could be made, but I am making inquiries and will communicate with the hon. Member.
