§ 59. Sir H. BRITTAIN
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been called to the fact that, following the example of New Zealand, the Dominion of Canada is proposing to re-introduce Imperial penny postage; and whether he is now able to suggest any approximate date when this country may again enjoy the same benefit?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The postage on letters from South Africa to 1019 other parts of the Empire is 2d. per ounce; from Canada it is 4 cents (2d.) for the first ounce and 3 cents (1½d.) for each additional ounce; and I have no information of any proposal to reduce those rates. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative.
