§ 52. Sir A. HOLBROOK
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the inauguration of penny postage in Canada and to the increase in the letter mails to Britain as the result; whether he has considered the impetus to trade which would be given by the reintroduction of penny postage in this country; and whether he proposes to take early action in this direction?
§ 55. Mr. HORE-BELISHA
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that Canada is restoring the penny post as between herself and all other parts of the Empire, and New Zea- 768 land has already restored it, he can hold out any hope that the penny postage will be reinstituted during the present Parliament between Great Britain and the Dominions?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I cannot make any statement at this date. The whole field of revenue is always surveyed before every Budget.
