HC Deb 30 July 1934 vol 292 cc2296-7W

asked the Postmaster-General whether his Department is contemplating the reduction of the minimum charge for telegrams; and, in that case, whether he can give any details?


As I stated in reply to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Kingston-upon-Hull, East (Brigadier-General Nation) on the 9th instant, the question of telegram charges is at present receiving careful consideration, but the investigations involved must necessarily occupy some time yet. No conclusions have been arrived at, and I am therefore not in a position to make any further statement.
