§ Mr. CROOM-JOHNSON
asked the Postmaster-General whether the existing rate of postage to the United States of America for ordinary post letters was fixed as the result of any and, if so, what reciprocal arrangements, and when?
§ Sir K. WOOD
A reciprocal Agreement was made in 1908 for reduced rates of postage on letters exchanged between this country and the United States of America. Owing to post-War financial conditions, the agreed rates have since been varied by each party with the tacit concurrence of the other.
