§ Major HARVEY
asked the Postmaster-General if the parcel post arrangement now in force between this country and certain other countries known as the cash-on-delivery system is conducted at a profit or at a loss; and if he can give the amount of such profit or loss?
Sir W. JOYNYSON-HICKS:
I regret that it is not possible to separate the cost of dealing with the relatively small number of cash-on-delivery parcels from that of the parcel," post generally. But the parcel post as a whole is un-remunerative.
