§ 69. Sir P. Hannon
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware of the arrangements recently made by the 294W American postal administration for the despatch of gift parcels to the United Kingdom at reduced postal rates; and if the appreciation of His Majesty's Government will be conveyed to the United States Post Office departments.
§ Mr. Jay
I assume the hon. Member refers to the arrangements made under the Foreign Assistance Act of 1948, by which certain elements of the postal charges on relief goods and packages are met from funds made available by the Economic Co-operation Administration. The appreciation of His Majesty's Government for the assistance made available by the Foreign Assistance Act has been repeatedly conveyed to the United States Government.
