HC Deb 01 March 1955 vol 537 cc243-4W
Captain Pilkington

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, in the interests of economy and time, he will suggest to all Departments that, in acknowledging hon. Members' letters, they use a printed postcard, as do the Ministry of Labour and Colonial Office, instead of a typed letter and envelope.

Mr. H. Brooke

I am grateful to my hon. and gallant Friend for this suggestion, which I am adopting for my own correspondence as soon as stocks of existing acknowledgment forms are exhausted; and I will gladly commend it to my colleagues.
