§ 28. Major Anstruther-Gray
asked the Postmaster-General whether his attention has been drawn to the need for postage stamps of 3½d. and 4½d. to obviate the need to use more than one stamp for packages over four ounces with consequent waste of time and labour; and if he will take steps to meet this requirement.
§ Mr. Alport
My right hon. Friend is looking into the matter and will write to my hon. and gallant Friend.
§ Major Anstruther-Gray
Will my hon. Friend bear in mind that time is precious? Although it may not take very long to affix two stamps to a single package, if a firm is dealing with hundreds of packages it takes a lot of time. Will he therefore look into this matter with more sympathy?
§ Commander Agnew
Will my hon. Friend also bear in mind the need not to increase Government expenditure?
