HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc240-1W
114. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the amounts charged per newspaper sent by air-mail to members of His Majesty's forces serving in South-East Asia, India, M.E.L.F., B.A.O.R., East Africa and West Africa, respectively.

Mr. Burke

There is no separate airmail postage rate for newspapers for H.M. Forces overseas. The letter rates of postage quoted in my reply to the hon. Member on 31st October apply to all the destinations now mentioned except B.A.O.R. There is no special air mail rate for any class of correspondence for B.A.O.R. but in general letters up to one ounce prepaid at the ordinary Forces rate, namely, 1½d., are forwarded by air.
