HC Deb 16 November 1926 vol 199 c1676
41. Mr. BAKER

also asked the Postmaster-General what steps are being taken to advertise the cash-on-delivery services provided by the Post Office; and if he will consider a definite publicity campaign to include the distribution of attractive literature and advertising in the Press?


The opening of the cash-on-delivery service received a very wide publicity in the Press and elsewhere, and the extent to which it is already used suggests that its existence is well known to those who are likely to take advantage of it. I do not regard it as the duty of the Post Office to urge the public to use this facility in preference to other means of purchase and remittance.

Colonel DAY

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether the use of the cash-on-delivery service is increasing?


Yes; as I said the other day, the user is certainly growing.
