asked the Assistant Postmaster-General the volume of letters handled by his Department on a peak day at Christmas as compared with the traffic during a normal day.

On a normal day the number of letters handled by the Post Office is of the order of 25 million: on a peak day at Christmas the figure may approach 100 million.
