HC Deb 28 February 1940 vol 357 c2088W
Brigadier-General Spears

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is yet in a position to make a statement as regards the question of the reduction of the postage rates on letters to French troops serving in France?

Major Tryon

I am glad to say that the French Post Office has agreed that the rates of postage on letters and postcards posted in this country for the French forces serving in France should be reduced to those applicable to correspondence for members of the British Expeditionary Force, namely, 1½d. for the first ounce and 1d. for each additional ounce; and 1d. for postcards. The reduced rates will come into force on the 1st of March.
