HC Deb 26 July 1950 vol 478 c82W
148. Mr. Frederic Harris

asked the Postmaster-General what is the difference in priority of delivery between a 2½d. and 1d. postal packet.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Printed paper packets prepaid 1d. only and posted in London by 4.15–4.30 p.m. and in the Provinces by an hour prescribed locally, receive the same treatment generally as packets prepaid 2½d. If they are posted later in the day they are liable, unless prepaid an extra ½d., to be withheld from normal despatch for later despatch and delivery.
