§ Mr. BECKER
asked the Postmaster-General f he will consider, in future, the possibility of charging the Ministry of Pensions for the cost of distribution of pension awards through the Post Office, so that revenue may be increased?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
Credit is taken in the Post Office commercial accounts for the cost of distribution of pension awards through the Post Office, as shown at page 13 of House of Commons Paper No. 14 of Session 1023, and the estimated cost forms part of the amount 1303W recorded against Vote VI 3 Ministry of Pensions in Appendix B of the Post Office Estimates.
