HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c115W
87. Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the large profits being made by his Department, he will now consider the re-introduction of the 1½d. letter post.

Mr. Wilfred Paling

No. I fear that the cost of this proposal, with consequential reductions for postcards and newspapers, would considerably exceed the postal commercial surplus.
