HC Deb 11 December 1928 vol 223 c1944W

asked the Postmaster-General if his Department will allow all letters and parcels from Tristan da Cunha to be delivered free of charge in Great Britain since, as there is no money in the island, it is impossible to stamp letters and there is no post office?

Viscount WOLMER

Letters from Tristan da Cunha which do not bear postage stamps are charged on delivery single postage (not double as is usual when postage is not prepaid), and parcels are charged at the inland parcel rate, to cover the cost of conveyance in the United Kingdom. I regret that I am not prepared to make any further concession.
