§ 46. Mr. Nigel Davies
asked the Minister of Defence whether he will grant facilities for a weekly quota of letters to be sent free of postage by men on active service in Korea.
§ 52. Mr. Manuel
asked the Minister of Defence if he will consider the provision of free postal facilities for all troops in combat areas.
§ Mr. Shinwell
There is no restriction on the number of light-weight Forces letters which can be sent to the United Kingdom by air free of postage by Service men in Korea. In view of the cost of the concession I do not think that its extension to other theatres would be justified.
§ 56. Mr. Langford-Holt
asked the Postmaster-General whether, with a view to achieving a quick and cheap method of correspondence between the United Kingdom and His Majesty's Forces in Korea, he will consider re-introducing the air-graph system inaugurated during the war.
§ Mr. Ness Edwards
No. War experience clearly showed that the airgraph has not sufficient popular appeal in competition with the light-weight Forces letter.50W
