HC Deb 12 December 1938 vol 342 cc1635-6W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Postmaster-General whether he will take steps to secure as far as possible that British newspapers going to continental countries should be conveyed by air rather than by rail in order that editorial writers in other parts of Europe should not get two days' start in putting forward views over the editorial writers in London?

Major Tryon

Letters prepaid at the ordinary international rate of postage are conveyed by air to most European countries when, by this means, useful acceleration in delivery can be secured, and newspapers prepaid at that rate (namely 2½d. for the first ounce and l½d. for each additional ounce), would similarly be sent by air
