HC Deb 27 March 1933 vol 276 c692W

asked the Postmaster-General whether the principle of giving preferential postage rates within the British Empire has been extended to cover air-mail postage rates; whether the same percentage advantage over postal rates to foreign countries is given as by ordinary mail; and, if not, whether he intends in due course to adjust the rates on air-mail letters within the Empire to ensure that such full preference shall be given?


So far as that portion of the rates which does not relate to air transport is concerned, the answer is in the affirmative. The answer to the second and third parts of the question is in the negative.
