HC Deb 07 May 1952 vol 500 cc40-1W
Mr. Janner

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General if he is satisfied that, in connection with the increased postal rates to come into effect on 1st May, an extra burden will not be thrown on Post Office counter clerks, sorters, etc., in checking the postage and notifying the public of understamped letters.

Mr. Gammans

Changes in postal rates make some extra work at the outset. It is largely temporary and cannot be wholly avoided, although publicity and the co-operation of the public can do much to reduce it.
