HC Deb 23 April 1923 vol 163 cc44-5
100. Mr. SPARKES

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the detrimental effect produced by existing prohibitive postal rates upon the dairying industry, particularly in the West of England, he will, in revising the postal charges, give special consideration to the reduction of such charges on cream and dairy produce?


I regret that I could not entertain any suggestion to grant a preferential rate of postage for dairy produce. The dairying industry will, of course, benefit, in common with others, by the reductions of postal rates already announced.
