HC Deb 22 July 1941 vol 373 c818W
Captain Plugge

asked the Postmaster-General what privilege the sender of a telegram gets by making a payment of 6d. extra and having the word '' Priority '' marked on the wire?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

As stated in the Post Office Guide, for an additional charge of 6d., a telegram may be marked "Priority" and is specially expedited, both in transmission and delivery. Such telegrams take precedence over all ordinary telegrams on hand.
