HC Deb 06 February 1940 vol 357 c59W
Mr. Ammon

asked the Postmaster-General when and where was the most recent meeting of the Postal Union held and what special subjects were discussed; and will he state the date and country, when and where the next meeting of the union is to be held?

Major Tryon

The most recent congress of the Universal Postal Union was held at Buenos Aires from 1st April to 23rd May, 1939. The whole of the international postal services, including the detailed working arrangements, came under review. The discussions mainly affected the mutual relations of the postal administrations, and no decisions of outstanding importance to the general public were reached. The next congress is due to meet at Paris in 1944.
