§ Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Postmaster-General whether there has been any diminution in the number of letters transmitted through the post since the rate for inland postage was raised to 2d.?
§ Mr. ILLINGWORTH
In answer to a question by the hon. Member for the Acton Division (Sir H. Brittain) on the 30th June, I stated that according to the information then available there had been a small diminution—probably something less than 5 per cent. I still anticipate that the diminution will approximate to that figure, but returns of traffic which were taken recently have not yet been analysed.
