HC Deb 15 February 1940 vol 357 c974W
Mr. Whiteley

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is prepared to consider a reduction in the price of parcels sent to the front by women's working parties, particularly as all other costs are borne locally?

Captain Waterhouse

I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to a Question by the hon. Member for Normanton (Mr. T. Smith) on 30th January on the subject of postage rates for parcels sent to officers and men serving overseas. I regret that it is not possible to make a special exception for parcels sent by women's working parties, valuable as their work undoubtedly is.
