HC Deb 23 January 1962 vol 652 c11
14. Mr. W. R. Williams

asked the Postmaster-General what surplus he anticipates on the Post Office General Account, and on postal and telecommunications accounts, respectively, at the end of the current financial year on the basis of prices, rates of pay, and tariffs current on 1st December, 1961.

Mr. Bevins

I estimate a surplus of about £17 million in the current financial year of which about £15 million will come from telecommunications. These figures do not take into account the effect of working to rule, since the duration of this is not yet known.
