HC Deb 06 August 1940 vol 363 cc42-3W
Mr. T. Smith

asked the Postmaster-General whether, as one method of maintaining satisfactorily the schemes for the evacuation of schoolchildren, he will consider the desirability of arranging a system of free postage for the children and their parents in order to encourage more regular correspondence?

Captain Waterhouse

My right hon. Friend regrets that he cannot entertain my hon. Friend's suggestion. The movement not only of children but of considerable sections of the population from one district to another would make it impossible to limit the extent of the application of any such concessions?
