HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 cc52-3W
67. Mr. Janner

asked the Postmaster-General whether, in view of the public lack of knowledge about the new postal rates on inland printed papers, he will consider giving more publicity to this change.

Mr. Ness Edwards

Press notices were issued on 18th May and on 1st and 7th June. Broadcast announcements were made on 31st May and 14th June. A public notice is exhibited at post offices; large users of the post, headquarters offices of Chambers of Commerce, the Federation of British Industries, and the British Bankers' Association, were notified individually before the change took effect. Much independent Press publicity has recently been given to the change and the position is now generally well understood.
