asked the Postmaster-General the number of sixpenny and one shilling postal orders issued by him from 6th April, 1931, to 6th April, 1932, and the total amount of stamp duty obtained by him there for from the public?
|6d. postal orders||33,992,669||£141,615|
|1s. postal orders||21,158,854||£88,125|
§ These figures include the orders issued in the Dominions and Colonies and also 4,998 sixpenny and 8,772 one shilling orders issued by the Admiralty on His Majesty's ships, free of poundage.236
§ Sir W. SUGDEN
In view of the small amount used, and in view of the people who use them, will the Department consider a reduction of the poundage on these small orders?
