HC Deb 07 November 1961 vol 648 c778
21. Mr. Fitch

asked the Postmaster-General what plans he has for reducing postal rates.

Miss Pike

None, Sir.

Mr. Fitch

In view of the apparent lack of a plan to reduce the postal rates generally, will the hon. Lady have another look at the system which is operated in America?

Miss Pike

I am advised that it is worse than ours.

Mr. Bowles

May I ask the hon. Lady whether Christmas cards can be sent this year for 2d. instead of 2½d.? I think it would make a lot of difference.

Miss Pike

No, Sir.
