§ 72. Mr. KEENS
asked the Postmaster General whether he is aware that British exporters using parcels post are considerably handicapped as against their continental competitiors, particularly in Switzerland and Germany, by the limitation of size and weight imposed by the British Post Office; whether he is aware that the difference in cost of postage is sufficient to determine the transfer of a large portion of the business in neutral markets to Switzerland and Germany as against this country; and what he proposes to do to remedy the matter?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
The practicability of increasing the limit of size and weight for parcels from this country for certain places abroad is at present under examination. But I am not yet in a position to make any statement in the matter.
