§ 4. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the new and cheaper small-parcel rates issued by the railway companies to come into force next year; and whether, in view of these reductions, he proposes to reduce the parcel-post rates for similar weights on small parcels?
§ The POSTMASTER GENERAL (Mr. Neville Chamberlain)
I am aware that temporary reductions in parcels rate are 3353 about to be made by the railway companies, but I cannot at present make any statement on the subject referred to in the question.
