HC Deb 07 July 1932 vol 268 cc613-4

asked the Postmaster-General whether the charges made by his Department to other countries in respect of transport of air mails on British air-mail lines are based on the gold franc; and, if so, whether the increased Post Office revenue resulting from the suspension of the Gold Standard has been allocated to making any corresponding increase in the payments made in respect of such mails carried by English machines, or whether it has been entirely absorbed by the increased foreign charges in respect of such mails caused by the decreased value of the £ sterling?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Blackpool (Captain Erskine-Bolst) on Monday the 4th instant.
