21. Sir John Mellor

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General when he proposes to reduce postage, telephone and telegraph rates.

Mr. Burke

I am sorry that I am not in a position to make a statement on these matters at present.

Yes, Sir. The matter is under consideration, but I cannot say anything further at this stage.
