HC Deb 07 May 1947 vol 437 c434
72. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Postmaster-General the total amount collected, during the 12 months prior to the latest accountable date, from public stamp machines in excess of the value of the stamps supplied from those machines.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

For the 12 months ended 31st March, 1946, the excess amount collected was approximately £1,100.

Mr. Allighan

Will the Postmaster-General see that some device is fixed to these machines so that the public do not have to pay for stamps which are not there?

Mr. Paling

If it were possible to find a completely accurate machine, we should welcome it.
