HC Deb 18 October 1939 vol 352 c884W
Mr. Tinker

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware of the feeling against the excessive postage rates charged on parcels sent overseas to the troops; and will he examine this matter and see whether arrangements can be made to reduce the rates?

Major Tryon

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave yesterday to questions by the hon. Members for Bilston (Mr. Hannah), Doncaster (Mr. J. Morgan) and Linlithgow (Mr. Mathers), when I announced substantial reductions in the charges on parcels sent to members of His Majesty's Forces serving overseas, which have come into force to-day.
