HC Deb 09 November 1955 vol 545 cc183-4W
18. Mr. Lewis

asked the Postmaster-General if he will give a list of the public services provided by his Department, and the total cost to the public for each of these services, in the years 1951 to 1955, respectively, together with the percentage increase in cost at 1955, compared with 1951, taking into account the application of the increases proposed in the Budget.

Dr. Hill

A volume of statistics would be needed to answer the hon. Member's Question in its present comprehensive form. Certain comparisons have been given in Part X of the White Paper. If the hon. Member wishes to have further similar comparisons between specific tariffs at particular dates, I will try to provide them.
