HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 cc2182-3
8. Dr. Segal

asked the Postmaster-General for what reasons he is unwilling to sanction an issue of air mail stamps.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

Special air mail stamps do not offer any advantage in the treatment of air mail correspondence which would balance the additional work and expense of producing, stocking and issuing them.

Dr. Segal

Has the right hon. Gentleman any means of assessing the loss in dollars to this country arising out of his decision?

Mr. Paling

No, Sir.
