HC Deb 02 December 1926 vol 200 c1372
68. Lieut.-Colonel GAULT

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the existing two cent postage rate between Canada and the United States of America, he can give an approximate date for the return to a penny postage rate within the Empire, in order to facilitate inter-communication and business relations between the component parts of the British Commonwealth?

Viscount WOLMER

In view of the present state of the national finances, I am afraid that the answer is in the negative. The Canadian rate of postage to the United States of America has, I understand, been one cent below their general Imeprial rate for some years past, and this is still the position.
