HC Deb 05 February 1929 vol 224 c1599W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has taken into consideration the desirability of establishing penny post for letters throughout the Empire; and what is the estimated cost of the change?


The proposal is one to be considered only in conjunction with the suggested reduction at a cost of some £6,000,000 in the rate of inland postage. The separate cost to this country of establishing penny post to the Empire overseas would be about £200,000 a year.
