asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now permit an increase in the maximum weight of food and other parcels coming into this country by post.

Sir S. Cripps

The maximum weight of a parcel which may be imported by post without an import licence has now been increased to 11 lb., provided that the total weight of food contained in the parcel does not exceed 7 lb. and that each separate foodstuff contained in it does not weigh more than 2 lb.
