§ 6. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he will prohibit all unsolicited circulars being sent through the post containing betting and gambling information until the present paper shortage has been rectified.
§ Mr. Freeman
Is the Assistant Postmaster-General aware that some of these circulars contain as many as five enclosures which are elaborately printed in coloured inks? In view of the colossal number of circulars and the shortage of paper in other directions, does he not think this is a direction in which we might save paper instead of allowing these people to exploit the public?
§ Mr. Quintin Hogg
Is it not remarkable how often Members opposite are trying to stop someone's fun somewhere?
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
Is it not clear that the purpose of Question 6 is to save paper until the present shortage is over?
