HC Deb 25 February 1952 vol 496 c108W
Mr. Thurtle

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will endeavour to make a reduction in the prevailing air mail postage charges to members of the Forces now stationed in Egypt.

Mr. Head

No. I do not think that I should be justified in pressing for a reduction in the present concessionary rates. In any case the time taken by surface route is only about 18 days.
