HC Deb 01 December 1931 vol 260 cc951-2W

asked the Postmaster-General the net loss on the services in. Northern Ireland for the past year; and what proportion of the cost of the censorship of letters by officers of his Department, asked for by the Northern Government, is being defrayed by them?


It is not possible to state the loss, if any, on the services in Northern Ireland for the last year on a commercial basis, but the excess of cash payments over cash receipts attributable to Post Office services in Northern Ireland was in 1930–31 approximately £40,000. As regards the second part of the question, I can only refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to his question of 17th November.
