HC Deb 05 May 1954 vol 527 c13W
19. Mr. Cooper-Key

asked the Assistant Postmaster-General whether he is aware that food parcels sent to Korea by sea route take six to seven weeks to reach their destination; and whether he will consider making available an air service for the convenience of friends and relatives wishing to send food parcels to troops in that theatre.

Mr. Gammans

Letter packets up to 4 lb. in weight, and small packets up to 2 lb. can already be sent by air to troops in Korea at concessionary postage rates. I am writing to my hon. Friend about the case that he has brought to my notice.
