HC Deb 19 November 1940 vol 365 c1829
53. Captain Plugge

asked the Prime Minister, whether, in view of the cost of stamps to Members of Parliament in connection with letters on purely constitutional matters, he will consider granting to Members the privilege of free postage for letters addressed to their constituents?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer (Sir Kingsley Wood)

I have been asked to reply. I regret that I am unable to accept the suggestion of my hon. and gallant Friend that Members of Parliament, in addition to their salaries as Members, should receive free postal facilities, at the expense of the Revenue.
