HC Deb 04 July 1932 vol 268 c20
47. Mr. ROBINSON (for Mr. HOPE)

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is now in a position to state why postmasters are prohibited from giving receipts for purchases of postage stamps to a lesser value than £25; and whether, with a view to obviating the inconvenience in auditing the books of business firms and the prevention of possible abuses, he will consider amending the Regulations so as to bring the practice into conformity with that obtaining in the case of health and unemployment insurance stamps?


I have now arranged for the reduction of the minimum value of a purchase of postage stamps for which a receipt is given from £25 to £3.
